- The Fallen
Here we pay homage
to some of the great people of our time who have since passed on
Two years ago, on his 31st
birthday, Chuck Schuldiner, founder of Death & Control Denied and forefather
to an entire movement in Heavy Metal, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour.
For the past two years, Chuck has fought for his life, family and passion for
music. On the 13th of December 2001 Chuck Schuldiner passed away. This came as a
great shock to me as I had seen news that he was on the road to recovery after
his fight for life over the last two years. His death will doubtlessly affect all
fans of his music. The bands he was in have influenced so much great music of
our time and have been a great influence to my own playing.
It is always truly a shame when
a legend such as Chuck leaves this world. We give all our support to Chuck's
friends and family during which will surely be a hard time for them. Rest in
peace man, hope you've gone on to a much better place...
