With sadness, I am posting this e-mail from Eddie's friend Tim to all of you. Eddie is a legendary local surf rock musician. From my half hour talk with Eddie, I was left with an impression of a kind, unassuming person.
"Back in Oct 2008 (Post link) you posted a blog about long time PV resident Eddie Bertrand. Unfortunately, Eddie has terminal cancer and only has a few has days left. I was hoping you could share this in your blog.
Those wishing to send their thoughts to Eddie may do so at All emails will be read to Eddie and placed in a book for the family.
Here is a link to one of Eddie's Last Live Performance."

That is sad. I got here a little to late but I did see his performance on U-Tube. Wow, serious surf rock. A south Bay legend. Probably listened to a Bukowski reading or two. RIP
