Tripping Daisy Guitarist's Death Ruled OD

Band organizing two benefits for Wes Berggren's parents this weekend.

Tripping Daisy guitarist Wes Berggren died last month from

an accidental overdose of cocaine, propoxyphene and benzodiazepine, the

Dallas medical examiner ruled Wednesday (Nov. 10). Berggren, who was 28,

was found in his Dallas apartment Oct. 27. Concerts Friday and Saturday

in Dallas originally planned as Tripping Daisy shows will now be benefits

for Berggren's parents, the band said in an e-mail announcement. Local

bands will play each night, with members of Tripping Daisy — who had

a 1995 rock hit with "I Got a Girl" — spinning familiar tracks,

acoustic songs, unreleased work and demos between sets.
