Barry Kuul
The lights in the Bridgeport Bank building have been dimmed to half brightness to show respect for Barry Kuul, lead guitarist for The Shaft, the local elevator music band that made it big.  Kuul and his gang of elevator music musicians were at the elevator entrance on the twenty fifth floor, when Kuul went into a frenzied guitar solo.  Unbeknownst to him the elevator door opened and he backed into the elevator, falling twenty five stories to his death.  Witnesses said they heard him playing all the way down.

Kuul, also wrote most of the music his band recorded for elevators everywhere. While on tour in Japan, in 2010, he was mobbed by elevator music fans and had to spend a week in seclusion before continuing the tour.  The Shaft's Greatest Hits Album was released just last week with the song "I'm On My Way Up" reaching number two on Billboard charts, followed by "I've Got That Down Feeling", coming in at number twelve.

Kuul will be missed, but not far away.  He wanted to be buried at the bottom of a shaft when he died and his wishes will be honored according Bridgeport Bank President John Cash. 
OFF THE WALL NEWS  will attend the funeral and report any elevated news.
