Wow, very sad. Only saw them live once but they rocked!
this touches on it pretty well...
On The Passing of Tony Sly – Dying Scene
I saw them once at the first Warped Tour. That was the best one. Then KROQ took over & ruined it.
I've been listening nonstop since the news. There isn't just one song to repeat, there are so many.
I can't even count how many times I've seen them play in the last 15 years....but one of my favorite memories was a particular show at the roxy back in the 90s. During diesel boy's set, saw Tony on the side and as a naive teenager walked up and asked if he was going to play Biomag, as I really liked that song. He laughed and said it was probably the worst song they ever had or will write, so no, but thanks for asking.
And halfway through their set: "this is one of the worst songs ever written, but here we go" and played it anyway.
I still chuckle every time I listen to it
that's great. that doesn't happen too often with other bands.
neither does this...
apparently this little girl knew a bunch of the words to their songs. cute.
