    I am happy to say I’ve known Dan since before any of this happened. Back then he was just a collage kid reviewing clubs for MTV. MP3’s we’re just gaining in popularity and bands would still send out CD’s looking for a review. Dan seemed to have hundreds of them. He has always strived to write about music. It appears his passion can not dwindle.
