Well, we noticed on our message board that some of you were wondering what our bands' thoughts are on what has been going on...so, we asked. We asked them to tell us anything they wanted to share - how they feel about what is going on, where they were when it happened, how they found out, whatever... Over the next couple days we'll be bringing you some words from members of Roadrunner bands as they come in. Today we offer words from the following - Raymond Herrera (Fear Factory), Thomas Noonan (36 Crazyfists), and Mark Hunter (Chimaira). The thoughts they wanted to share are as follows: Raymond Herrera, drums, Fear Factory - This is really tragic to say the least, I have been lucky enough not to have any friends, that I know of yet, that were on the flights that were taken over or in the World Trade Center buildings at the time. There is a very weird feeling in the air, here in Los Angeles, and are anticipating something very, very bad to happen in the near future. Mark Hunter, vocals, Chimaira - 10:00am and my phone rings. I figured it was my girlfriend calling to remind me that it is our drummer, Andols', birthday....nope, "turn on the news" she says....I could not believe my eyes, I saw NYC in smoke as if I were watching a movie. This tragedy affected me deeply. I was immediately stricken with concern for our friends and fans in the New York and DC area. I recall with horror my inability to contact anyone I knew in the New York area. I was trying to call our friends at Roadrunner, Ill Nino, Andrew and Maggie (our booking agents and good friends) as well as our various friends in the industry. Then I hear on the news not to call anyone so I jumped on line and to my relief I managed to find quite a few of the people I was looking for. I spent two days in front of my TV watching the tragic events unfold, and even though we should be getting ready for the biggest tour of our career, it hasn't even been a fleeting thought. My heart goes out to anyone that has been affected by this and I pray that this is the last time we will ever witness anything like this. Thomas Noonan, drums, 36 Crazyfists - I have been glued to the TV set for the past days. I just can't believe this shit has happened, who would do such thing to all these innocent people? It's like watching a movie, it's really hard for me to believe this really happened. Seeing the planes crash and innocent people falling to their deaths made me feel so SICK, I just pray to god there are more survivors and no more attacks. I do feel very, very angry at the people who are involved in this horrific event, and I would be lying if I said I didn't wish the most horrible death upon them. Like everyone else in the world, I'm just in complete shock, this experience has made me really look at life a little different. My heart and prayers go out to the families, the victims, and to everyone that had to witness this cowardly act. I love you all, take care and please be safe... Special thanks to the gentlemen above for sharing their thoughts. Until tomorrow...
