Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump sent out a message to AbsolutePunk.net regarding the deaths of Kanye West’s mother Donda and Casey Calvert of Hawthorne Heights. “You know, to be frank I didn’t know Casey very well,” Stump writes. “I have far reaching memories of him in the early days when we played a comic book shop together. We talked hardcore and laughed about Kiss makeup. Then on that tour we did together I remember him being simply genuine, always pleasant, always kind.

I’m pissed because I think I took him for granted a little. Pissed at myself.
