I was glad I got to see the band as many times as I did. Butch and I never did see eye to eye on politics and he did threaten me once (lol), I have that ability to piss people off. I am sure I deserved it. Butch was very passionate about his views. Anyway, he never gave a bad performance. I never walked away from a show thinking the drumming was lacking. In fact, he kept that freight train rolling and nailed it more often than not. I always enjoyed JaBuMa too. Sometimes when one door closes, another one opens. Who knows what the future will bring. I loved this band and it is a sad day for sure.

My condolences to his family and friends. These are hard times indeed.

Yes it was tough news for us all. I guess you posting this here is a reminder of why you should be removed from this silly playpen even if it doesn't even really matter anymore.

I am sad that it ended this way for Butch and his family and friends.

Even without Derek and Warren in the mix, I was always hoping for a reunion with Mr. Betts. It could still happen, but it won't be the same without Butch.
