In this section I will try to list the dedicated peeps who were nice enough to take time out of their busy lives and contribute in their own unique way. This list is in no special order or anything and if I leave you out then please understand that it was not on purpose and I will surely update as needed. It has been over 20 years ya’ know!
Mom and Dad for putting up with me during this time frame and helping me out in so many ways that it’s impossible to keep track off. You guys are the best!
Joe St. Laurent (Joe’s Imports WA.) without Joe most of these record labels, managers and bands would probably not have given me the time-of-day. Thanks for all your help, info and guidance + support to even attempt something like this (esp. only being 20 years old)
Karl B. for stepping in and trying to get the rocket off the ground. I do appreciate your time and effort spent even though it did not work out in the long run.
Curt Reinitz for the cool “wrecking ball” logo. I did manage to get that on a few sweatshirts.
All the worldwide fanzines and magazines out there that shared their contacts with me, traded ads and supported the scene by actually publishing their respected “rag”! I will eventually make a special section (see below) devoted to all of you – don’t worry I did not forget about you and the mark you made in the world.
Joe Smith (ex-Cornucopia of Death/Nine Stitches,/Mayor Frank etc.) and Tony Cariota from WVJC’s Monday Night Metal 89.1 FM for supporting local bands and underground indie metal.
Greg Armstrong (ex-Inverted Nipples, Kuru-Ama,Tweezer etc.) WVJC 89.1. Thanks for all of the fun times, concerts and jamming in those bands.
WUEV’s 91.5 FM Tuesday Night Metal Show. Another fine Indiana college radio station who played all things metal and hard rock etc. Here’s to the “Heavy Metal Express” show.
Mike “Mello” Richardson (ex-VICE) for being a good metal buddy and for hanging out, trading tapes and for letting me bang on the drums with VICE (even though I couldn’t really play at that time yet)!
Scott F. (ex-SLEEPY TRIP, OTHER PEOPLE) for helping out with the magazine reviews and for encouraging me to bang thy drums. I cherish all of the various Mini-Mall and & basement jam sessions!
Tim Humston (ex-SLEEPY TIP) for writing reviews for the magazine. Also thanks for all of the fun times in M.V. and B.G. (and for rescuing me there).
Michael Peerman for the many, many trips to Bogart’s in Cinci (Ohio)! Man did we see some killer shows or what?
Patrick McCarty for being a true metal warrior and keeping the faith after all of these years! And for having/sharing such a voracious appetite for metal/heavy music. I am glad you still have all of those cassettes I labored over in order to get you the latest jamz!
Troy Pence for all of the support and friendship over the years. Thanks again for stuffing all of those letters and envelopes to get the word out!
