Lead singer Bert McCracken wrote this about his dog that got hit by a car during the making of In Love And Death
. He recalled to Kerrang
"I had a dog named David Bowie, who was my best buddy for, like a whole year. Dogs are incredible companions, and I've never really lost anyone close to me at that point. When I left to make In Love and Death
, I booked the wrong ticket and I couldn't fly my dog, so my friend was planning to fly out with David Bowie two days later, and he was hit by a car that very next day. So yeah, as serious moment in my life, your first experience with death is a serious one."
