I'm with Justin. Brian, you have been missed and will be missed. Thanks for spending some of your time with us.


+1.

Rocker654 made me laugh so many times. I count myself as one of the many who wondered what had happened to him.

I miss him. He told stories, talked about his ability to hit Robin Zander level notes and I loved it. I also respected his love of "butt rock" as we call it here. I love a bunch of that shit too.

RIP

Shitty deal. I enjoyed his posts. Seemed like he would've been a fun dude to hang out with. He may have got the shit end of the stick, but from what I gather he made the fucking most of it.

I'm very sad to hear this. We exchanged PMs once in February of 2010. I wish I could say that I knew him better.

I tremendously admire his poise in the face of such terrible difficulty. Strong medicine indeed.

Rest well, sir.

I've been thinking about Rocker's death since I saw this post a few days ago. It's a bit sad that he was gone for a year or so before any of us found out. I'm grateful to know what happened to him.

He had some great Minneapolis anecdotes from the eighties and seemed to be a sweet, good natured guy.

His last days sound like they were difficult but I'm in awe of his strength and character through to the end. In his last few posts he mentions his illness and probable death but without self pity.

Salut and RIP, Rocker654.

I feel fortunate to have had the interactions I did with him here.
Dark humored, well-mannered and a funny fella to boot.


Rest Well, Brother.
kerble is right.
