R.I.P Don. I will never forget the time you gave me a ten minute lecture at milwaukee metalfest on why Karkov vodka rules. The metal community has suffered a great loss and you will be missed.

Well i stayed at his band practice room for 2 nights back in 2006. I wanted to kill him and throw him down the stairs then. All he did was drink vodka out of a gatorade bottle and blow up his cats a$$hole and talk a bunch of sh** to me. He was a diabetic/alcoholic. What do you expect? To me he was a wanna be that never made it anywhere but his nice distro metal store. Now that i look back it was funny, but hes a f***ing a$$hole. I guess thats what he wanted to be. He put out what 3 albums and a split in 15-20 goddamn years! His own band hated his fatass.

His practice space was his home. nice dump on top of station 4 full of gallons of piss and sh**. I bet whoevers cleaning that space up is gotta wear a hazmat suit. Well he was cool on the phone. I think he just had crazy mood swings. I'm not saying "I'm glad he's dead" He was a funny guy , in 10 seconds he'd turn into a d*** . It's just bizarre because a week ago. I was talking with my friends about. " Is that son of a b**** dead yet"? And he died. He would rather be talked sh** about than ohh poor Don i love you R.I.P.

I have to agree with 6-6-6 on the fact that the other day i was in fact saying to a friend "Is that sob dead yet?". RIP anyways. He did have a hell of a selection of metal cds. I wonder who gets them or is going to sell them now?

Don lived his life the fullest. He over indulged in food, alchol and vaginal blood and didn't give a f*** what anyone thought about him. He did more for the metal community than any of you a$$ hobbits who are talking sh**. Too bad it wasn't you who f***in' died and not Don. He was my brother and friend. I will miss that mother f***er, greatly!

I got to work with Don on shows several times, even traveled with Anal Blast as a merch guy a few times. He was a generous person to those he knew, and was a wealth of information and inspiration to young promoters.

His involvement as president of the 5 state regional chapter of the NYDM shows his dedication to the metal community.

You will be missed Don, well.... by some people

Don was cool as hell! I met him a few times and we partied. He gave us all t shirts, cd's and didn't ask for anything in return. He did a lot for metal and especially in MN. Now as far as the nydm goes, f*ck them! I hate them all! They are so full of sh**! They were lucky to have Don. I live for the day that those New York d*** Munchers gang finally dies out. They are all posers, alcoholics, molestors of kids, drug sellers, whores and I ain't even making any of this sh** up, neither! They might have a few cool people in their group, but the gang itself is bullsh**! Here in MN we have no respect for them at all! But Don, you will be missed and thanks for everything you did for metal! R.I.P.
