Gonna miss you, Tony Schnur. I’m so thankful for having you in my life. We go to see and do some pretty rad stuff together. And I’ll do that Motley Crue cover even though I can’t stand hair metal.

About an hour ago the world lost an amazing individual. I never got to meet Thick like I had planned to but the content he made over the years made me feel like I had. Too many dark days, did his videos light. Both an incredible guitarist and gaming channel icon battling with brain cancer for 2 years now we were all inspired. We all truly believed that if there was anyone who could beat it, it’d be you…. You will be missed brother rest easy, your children will be cared for, and your mission for world peace will continue in your absence.
