• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

Not So Fast....

Wow. I remember now. RIP to all.

I knew a kid that died in that fire. We called him Metal Matt. He wasnt a musician, or even a drummer, but he went to at least 200 shows a year and recorded a good bit of them. In fact, that's how I met him. He recorded a few of my shows back in the day. He just loved music and seeing live bands, more than anyone else I have ever met. He's actually seen in the video right at the front of the stage as the fire started. The ONLY positive I can find, and it's a very small one, is that at least when he passed he was doing something he truly loved. RIP Metal Matt.

On a side note, the next day my phone rang off the hook because that show was the type of show my buddies and I went to all the time. I was never a GW fan or I most likely would have been there myself.
This post really hit home for me.

Thank you for putting a face with the tragedy.

RIP Metal Matt.


What is this about? It's obviously tragic, and I'm not being disrespectful, just curious what incident you are talking about.

Is it the anniversary of the Station nightclub fire? Tragic.

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, this is in response to the Jack Russell/Neil Schon thread.

Here is a short profile on Matt.

I have to say that as tragic as this incident was, it was really inspiring to see Dee Snider, Stryper, Boston, Aaron Lewis, and all the other musicicians that donated their time and talents to help raise money and awareness for the victims, survivors, and their families. No matter what style, music is a common bond that we all share. Even if I wasn't a fan of any of the bands that performed (which I am) I would still support their future endeavors out of respect. We may be strangers, but we're all in this together.
