Former SNOT members Mikey Doling (currently in SOULFLY) and John Fahnestock plan to mark what would have been late frontman Lynn Strait's 33rd birthday today (Wednesday, August 7th) the day the best way they know possible, according to Launch: (Doling) "I take a huge bong hit and try to smoke a cigar..." (Fahnestock) "When I go to Santa Barbara I always stop by his gravesite, always spend some quiet time there. We like to go there." (Doling) "We like to go there and burn weed and cigars and bury guitar picks and just kinda hang out."Strait died in a car accident in 1998, putting an end to a career that generated considerable promise but only one studio album, the 1997 Geffen Records release Get Some. Previously, the surviving members of SNOT had indicated that they would ask rock radio stations across the country to pay tribute to Strait by playing the group's new live album, Snot Alive!, in its entirety to mark the singer's birthday. Snot Alive! captures the band on stage in Los Angeles in May of 1998, seven months before Strait's death. It arrived via Universal Records' Hip-O label on July 30th.
