Dennis Sheehan, who served as U2’s tour manager for over thirty years, was found dead today in a Los Angeles hotel room. His death followed the first in a five-concert run for U2 at Los Angeles’s Forum, and is the latest in a string of terrible disasters for the group, which appears to be suffering under a mysterious, powerful curse.

TMZ reports Sheehan was found unconscious in his room at the Sunset Marquis Hotel early this morning. Paramedics were called for a reported cardiac arrest and he was pronounced dead at the scene. He was in his late 60s.

What did Irish rockers U2 do to deserve this curse and all of its remarkably unpleasant consequences? Man. We may never know.
