R.I.P. Tim Dever

Recommended Posts

Ty let me know that Tim Dever, a very early member of the HH community and moderator at one point, passed away last night due to the coronavirus. He had been fighting major health problems most of his life, and was in the high-risk category.

I had lost touch with Tim in the past several years, but he was an active member here in the early years.

I'll leave it up to Ty to reply with more information if he deems it appropriate.

R.I.P. Tim. :(

We lost one of our long time members last night. I'm almost positive anybody and everybody who has traded CDs on this website has traded with him or got to know him in some way. Tim fought long and hard for most of his life dealing with different medical issues including kidney transplants as well as liver and pancreas, and other things. Through all of that he still remained a kind and passionate guy and would do anything for anyone. 

He finally was getting everything put together and got transplants that worked so he could have a normal life a couple years ago. He even got married last year to someone he met from his church. Couple of weeks ago he got admitted into the hospital for some infection in his leg called cellulitis. That infection started messing with everything else going on including screwing with his pancreas and liver. Somewhere in the midst of all of that he contracted the coronavirus in the hospital. After a couple of days on a ventilator and life support, his family was told they needed to turn it off last night because of his conditions. He peacefully passed away last night.

His mom has started a GoFundMe page to help his family and with some other things.

I do remember Tim from way back at the start but not sure our activeness on the forum overlapped. I think his user name was just Tim, wasn't it, thus later forcing the second Tim to be Tim (2)?

Anyway, that's a sad story and may he rest in peace.

Tim was one of the first folks at HH I did any trading of physical CDs with, and early on, when I was first getting into seeking out and/or hearing those elusive rarities, he was someone who didn't mind sharing a few MP3s so I could decide if I wanted to pursue a disc or not. 

His comments from back around 2002-2003 are all over the main site; he was very knowledgeable about all the mainstream bands, as well as the indie bands that few had ever heard of at that time. 

Just an all round nice guy; such a shame that after overcoming so many things in his life, this damn virus is what takes him from this world. -_-


R.I.P. Tim

For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.

    • "Cry Baby Cry" by Aldo Nova  
    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
