When Kaustubh “Stubhy” Pandav and Adam Krier wrote songs for west suburban-based rock band Lucky Boys Confusion, their melodies were never quite complete until guitarist Joe Sell got a hold of them.

“Joe would add the attitude and the swagger to it,” Pandav said.

Sell, a self-taught guitarist with the local band that made it big with songs like “Fred Astaire” and “Dumb Pop Song,” was found dead on Chicago’s West Side Tuesday.

Following an autopsy a cause of death for the 33-year-old Naperville resident was pending toxicology test results. Officials said he had been found on the 2700 block of West Superior Street, which Pandav said is close to the band’s rehearsal space.
