Bob Tamp It's about 4am in the US, Wednesday morning. Matt Mulcahy (known to many of you as Riffhard) passed away earlier tonight after a nine day struggle with pnuemonia. He was an avid stones freak, but more importantly he was my best friend. Even though Doctors tell you to prepare for the worst, you're are never really ready. He was just 39 years old and he and I sometimes pushed the envelope to excess.

I know Matt is in a better place now cranking up the tunes. He will never know how much I will miss him.

Thanks to everyone on the Board for being so supportive. He loved you folks too.

mac_daddy Bob-

My thoughts and prayers are with you, as well as with Matt's family and friends...

Hang in there, and Godspeed.

FotiniD Bob, this is so damn sad We all prayed and we all hoped Matt would make it..

You've been a fantastic friend to him and I'm sure he knows, wherever he is.

All my love and prayers go out to you and Matt's friends and family.

Nellcote Hey Man, sounds like he put up a heroic effort in this struggle. You need to understand that his time in this battle was assisted by your great friendship.

Hang in there, we are all thinking of you.
