Seaside Bench Honors Eazy-E

Seaside Bench Honors Eazy-E What started as a joke turned out to be a real memorial bench in honor of the legendary Eazy-E. Guy Stevens from Newhaven, East Sussex in England is a Hip-Hop fan. He suggested for his port town to dedicate a bench to the rapper near a bandstand. Even though the town council had no idea who Eazy-E was, donations for the memorial came pouring in. Over $2,000 came in and the memorial bench only cost about $1,500. The remaining money went to several HIV-related charities. Eazy-E died of Aids in 1995. The bench dedication says, "Rest In Peace Eric "Eazy-E" Wright 1964-1995." Stevens is even suggesting Tupac and Biggie memorial benches in his town or nearby communities. Do you have memorials to contemporary figures in your area? What is your favorite?
