Music Foundation

I was 13 years old when a friend of mine introduced me to No Use for a name. We listened to the Making Friends record. It was a magical moment that changed my life. I was so fascinated by this record. It was unbelievable. All that energy and anger struck me like lightning. That was when I knew I also want to do that, I want to make music & tell everyone how I feel & think. So it's because of Tony & No Use that I started to play the guitar....

 

....Now I'm 28 years old & still listening to this awesome and distinctive band. Thanks to Tony & No Use I knew who I was, I could identify myself with the music. I had the pleasure & honor to meet Tony when they played a show in my hometown, Klagenfurt - Austria. We had a beer and talked. It was like we had known each other for a long time....

 

....During the last years I listened to Tony's solo records. It makes me feel redeemed.

I want to say thanks to Tony's wife, his daughters, friends & family for sharing Tony with me/us all. I also want to thank Matt, Rory, Chris, Dave for being awesome musicians & inspiring me to make my own music & following my dreams.

 

Tony, if it weren't for you I would have never picked up a guitar. You'll always have a place in my heart! Thank you for your great music!

cheers,chris
