How do you show that you like your fans? You don’t ding’em for money every possible chance you get. You make CD’s long and add a lot of cool bonus cuts. You don’t charge $50 for a t-shirt. When kids download your stuff for free off of the…internet and tell you about it, you don’t get mad at them. My parting line is ” I’D RATHER BE HEARD THAN PAID.” Am I going to come after you like Lars Ulrich, demanding my 35 cents, nah man. If you can’t afford to listen to my music and you gotta get it off the internet, at least you’re rockin -Henry Rollins
We read the news in the van as we were finishing one of the last drives of tour, and could hardly process it. This man and his musical endeavors had more influence on this band than anyone will ever know.
R.I.P., Jason Noble. Forever indeed.
