Remembering TC Edwards

Little Rock lost one of its brightest lights Sunday morning when TC Edwards was brutally murdered. TC is remembered and loved by many for his kindness and gentleness, his easy way of connecting to people through his love of music, greeting people by pinching their elbow, and for being way, way more metal than you or me.

TC was the leader of the band TC & The Eddies, backed up by the guys from Reagan's Polyp and Bircho from Trusty (among many others). They made a pair of albums in 1995 and 1996 called A Date With T.C. and Tear Down The Walls. Those are available to stream or download for free from the band's Soundcloud page. He is also the subject of the years in the making documentary TC and Me: A Rockumentary by Little Rock filmmaker, DJ, agent provocateur, and TC's closest friend, Mike Poe.

There's a GoFundMe page set up to help pay for TC's funeral and burial expenses. If TC touched your life (or your elbow) or the life of someone you know, please consider contributing what you can. If you prefer to give in person, the band Trophy Boyfriends are dedicating their Friday night performance at Pizza D'Action to TC's memory and, instead of charging a cover, they're asking for donations for TC's family.
