Do the Math, the weblog of The Bad Plus had this link to the sad but fascinating story of bassist Butch Warren: Decades of Discord Lie Between a Man and His Music: "The staff at Springfield Hospital Center -- Butch Warren refers to it only as 'the loony bin' -- knows him as 'Ed.' He's one more guy whose mental illness got him in trouble and landed him in a state hospital 50 miles from home, locked up in a secure ward, behind a chain-link fence."
