He was one of the sweetest guys in a band that we’ve ever had the chance to tour with. More than anything, it reminds you of what’s really important in life — it humanizes the situation. Maybe gossip in blogs and first-week sales mean a bit less than telling people you care about how much you love them.” Read more, including thoughts from FOB’s Joe Trohman, Relient K frontman Matt Thiessen, Paramore drummer Zac Farro, and the A.K.A.s frontman Mike Ski here.
