I thought, this comment from one of my blog post is just a hoax. But Jim Ayson of the Eraserheads mailing list confirmed it.
And I quote:
Hi guys – I got a message from Sancho saying Ely’s mom died this morning – went into a cardiac arrest after surgery. The guy is in grief so prayers, condolences for the man might be in order to give him strength and solace. Those of you who have lost parents know what I mean.
What a turn of events?! Will the Eraserheads Reunion Concert push through this Saturday? As of the moment, there is no official announcement yet. But as a fan, I will understand whatever their decision might be.
Condolence to Ely Buendia and his family.

Update (August 28, 2008, 8:00PM): According to TV Patrol, the concert will push through despite Ely’s mom’s passing.
