Post by Raneman » Sat Jul 18, 2009 7:55 pm

I just heard that he was accidentally shot dead in a hotel room last night while he was on vacation?! Is this true?!

Any info on this at all?!

Well folks...yes it is true...the details are sketchy but the details so far are, he was on vacation and he somehow accidentally tried to open the wrong hotel room, and someone opened the door and shot him twice in the chest.

What a great loss to the music industry...OMG...what the fuck is this world coming to...

FUCK!

My thoughts are with his family...if anybody gets any more details...please let me know. I would at least like to attend the funeral.

For those of you who don't know Tom...he is founder and owner of The Tank Studio in Black Diamond and taught live sound as well as studio sound at the Art Institute of Seattle.

He will be sorely missed...R.I.P.

Once again, never met the guy, but his family and friends certainly have my condolences. Too fucking tragic. Rest in peace, brother.

Tom was really nice. Jeff from The Mentors recorded my band at his Renton house before he moved to BD to open the new studio and he was super nice to us. And his wife and daughter were nice as well. Shame that shit happens like that. The only reason this happened is because some fuck thinks that he or his belongings are so important to the rest of the world that he feels he needs to carry a gun to protect himself. Add a touch of ignorance and trigger happy fingers and you get stupid mistakes like this. What a loss.

You've got to be fucking kidding me! Tom was such an awesome person. He sure as hell will be missed.

RIP brother.

FUCK....................................

All i got to say is WOW, what a loss. I cant even begin to imagine about how his wife and kids are doing. This is a very sad day. Me and Tom did many projects together over the years, mostly an engineer in his studios and helped pound nails into his new studio that was in black diamond. I cant even begin to gasp how fucked this day really is.

RIP BROTHA

Except for what has appeared in this thread I don't know who he is, but what I quoted above seriously fucking bothers me.

Nope...just a 57 year old man who saw a black man and his wife trying to open the door with THEIR ROOM KEY...and just opened fire at the door, hitting Tom in the arm and in the kidney/liver...the man was then spooked by his image in the mirror in his own room that he shot at the mirror sending a bullet through the wall that just about hit a 70 year old man in the next room as well...

...talk about being a 57 year old ignorant pussy.

RIP

I did not know him, I only know the excellent reputation and major impact he has had on the NW music scene. I have friends whom have worked directly with him and/or been a AI student of his.

Such a tragic loss.

(from http://pinkonvinyl.com/tom-pfaeffle/)

We’re happy to announce that on the evening of Thursday, August 13th, at The Moore Theater in Seattle, there will be a memorial celebrating Tom’s life. Doors will open at 5pm. Everyone is welcome.

We'll be celebrating the night in the only way Tom would've wanted -- with great stories, music & friends.

There will be an open mic to share your stories of Tom.

Special guests will be Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground and Random Manor.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the Pfaeffle family. There will be no ticketing, we ask that you donate whatever you can.

We’d like to thank The Seattle Theater Group, Triamp Group and The Art Institute of Seattle for their generosity.

For those of you who are unable to attend, please feel free to use http://pinkonvinyl.com/tom-pfaeffle/ as a place to share memories, stories, songs and anything else you’d like to share in remembering Tom, his life and his work.

Also, Steve Barsotti is collecting pictures of Tom to be used in the memorial. If you have pictures you'd like to share, get in touch with him (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=715950010). Thanks!

Grab a copy of the latest Seattle Weekly for a pretty good story about the night Tom was killed.
