A longtime fixture on the Lubbock and Ruidoso music scene died Thursday morning in a traffic accident near Tatum, New Mexico.
61-year-old Richard "Weazel" Tairoa apparently was driving to Ruidoso from Lubbock when the one-vehicle rollover happened just West of the Texas state line. State police say he was Westbound on Highway 380 when he drove off the road, overcorrected, and then rolled his suburban several times.
Tairoa was thrown out of his suburban and landed on the highway, where he was struck by an oncoming truck.
