This is fucking balls.
First Chris Cornell and now Warrel. What a terrible fucking year.
He most certainly was older than 48. He was in Serpent's Knight in '83. Even if he was eighteen then, it would still make him at least 52.
this fuckin sucks
I haven't been on here in a long time but when my heart broke this morning I thought of the forum people ... I'm so sorry for you loss wholeheartedly sorry, . Some people just don't get that a fan a little no one from nowhere like me could be so devastated by this but I'am.....so the folks here that knew him personally must be torn to shreds, my hearts with yours ...be well
Neal still has the best Avatar on the forum ....
Fuck it's so hard to live a life now. Couldn't sleep at night and now i'm only thinking about him. I remember the conversation i had a few days back with my dad, how he is so old he sees his past idols dying one after another. Than i thought of myself in 40 years experiencing the same thing with my current idols. Few days later Warrel is gone. Life comes at you hard
At the start of my teenage years, I discovered Nevermore, and lost a parent. As you can imagine, whatever teenage listlessness the more philosophically-inclined experience, felt generally amplified. Music dampened dark thoughts and feelings. Discovering Nevermore made all those hours on other bands seem like practice or a distraction. I'm sure people that get into instruments and later start bands feel the same. That wasn't my path, instead I found this board. I found a community of somehow like-minded people, way more concentrated than any other online community. Tastes ranged wildly, but somehow fell into the realm of unequivocally "good." That if there was nothing else we could agree on, we could agree that boundaries were there to be pushed. Metal did that. Nevermore did that. Warrel did that. It may not have exactly been that way, but it felt that way. It felt good. Which life hadn't for awhile. And at the forefront, our tastemaker, WD. He really felt like the voice of a generation. Willing to mingle with us, the unwashed masses. As Heavy Metal took center stage in my very tiny teenage life he was my Jesus, declaring, "Create your own Religion," and "Believe in Nothing." It was audacious and hauntingly rang true. Somehow Warrel's hurting words promised salvation. Almost two decades later and I couldn't really have imagined a better life, which I credit largely in part to my state of mind. In no small way shaped by acid words. I only hope the next in line to the WD Bangbus gets a fraction of the deep dicking I got as a passenger.
At a loss for words...
I've never actually shed tears for someone I didn't know personally... until today. Fuck.
Also, hi, Vera! <3 <3 <3
This is still so surreal to me...
Stupid idea N°1: Is there a way we can contribute to a neverboard flower arrangement or something similar for the funeral?
Word on the street is that Studio 7 will be having a memorial of sorts soon. One more Neverboard meet up perhaps???
I hope whatever memorial service there is would give us East Coasters time to make arrangements
I'd do my best to be there.
Hummnn, I have a bunch of reward points to burn, but I'm leaving for Florida soon so if it's at a date that doesn't interfere, sure. I think I owe Kevin a beer for something a long time ago.
He died doing what he loved..
He shed his skin and is part of the great mystery now
If you manage to go to the funeral, please say goodbye to him from me...
I don't think it's a stupid idea at all.
If we can pull this off, I would like to contribute too. But how to arrange this?
As much as I would like to, i don't think it's possible for me to visit the memorial.
uhm... yeah.... I definitely recall you owning me a beer for uh... something or other, I think... We better make this happen!
