“There will be things said about David in the press these coming days and he’ll need our love and support,” a post on Pajo’s official Facebook page reads. “Feel free to comment here.”
The post comes after comments on the Electrical Audio message board indicated that Pajo survived a suicide attempt last night.
Louisville, Kentucky-born Pajo, who has performed solo as Papa M and under his last name, also worked with Tortoise, Royal Trux, the Yeah Yeahs, Will Oldham and Stereolab. He’s 46.
UPDATE: Pajo has posted a photo of himself in a hospital room giving a thumbs-up.
