A few words in honor of Tony Bono... Joe Cangelosi (ex-WHIPLASH drummer): "Tony Bono - one of the coolest most original people I know. I will miss him forever. One man who never played into all the bullshit in this heartless world. No words can describe the pain I feel. I'm proud to have been his friend and to have played with him. He will be missed all over the world. What you see is what you get with Tony Bono. A true one-of-a-kind. RIP" Frank Blackfire (ex-SODOM/KREATOR guitarist): "I was really shocked when I got the message from Joe [Cangelosi] that Tony Bono died and couldn't believe it at first. Man I will never forget you and the good times we had together at the Whiplash-Sodom European-Tour '87 . You were one of the most original people I knew. I guess you're happy where you are right now. One day we'll be united again. Peace brother." Thomas Bono (Tony's brother): "I'm glad to see that my brother has touched so many peoples lives. I will never forget waiting for him to come back from all the tours he had around the world. I know he has lived an eventful life, and knowing he was out there with all you guys and hearing what you all have to say makes me feel so glad to have had such a great brother. Oh, I wish I can see him come through that door again, struggling with his suitcase of clothes and bass guitar, trying to get though the door so I can just tackle him with a hug and feel the zippers and patches all over his leather jacket. He called me 'the Bono hope' and I will make sure to capitalize on his wish for me and my life. I love you, Anthony. We all do." Richie Birkenhead (ex-INTO ANOTHER vocalist): "Tony Bono was all heart. I have never known a warmer, kinder, more loving soul. Even when I was at my temper-tantrum-throwing worst on the road, Tony could crack me up with one joke, or that inimitable smirk. And in addition to that heart of gold, Tony was a one-of-a-kind, brilliant writer/performer with a fearsome arsenal of larger-than-anything bass riffs and chords that cracked ribs... He amazed me every time he picked up his bass. Bono... I love you and miss you so very much." God Bless...
