For those of you who are familiar with the Raezer's Edge speaker cabinets, sad news via email. This was sent to me unattributed so I can't vouch for accuracy. "Rich Raezer was found murdered today. His son, and I am not sure which one yet, is in custody and I have been told he has confessed to killing his father. I am absolutely just blown away by this. I can't provide you with an article in true journalistic form because 1. I am too shocked right now and 2. I just still don't have enough. I had a decent conversation with a Sgt. for the police there. I know a son is in custody and that Rich did not have much a of a family--at least not local. The sgt. said they have only located a sister---she provided information that Rich has had domestic issues with this same son in the past and I was provided information today by a person that this son has threatened Rich with a gun before. Apparently, the police had some knowledge that this person was becoming violent and they offered Rich information and steps he could follow to protect himself a bit more, but he supposedly did not follow through. I can understand. I called Rich this morning and I expected him to answer the phone in his soft-toned voice as he always did. But a damn detective answered the phone and told me Rich was dead. I had just paid for my 400x12 and I am not even sure if I will ever get the dough back; I am not sure I am going to care too much about that for awhile. But still, my excitement was about getting a Raezer's-Edge bass amp for my electric Reverend bass for my reunited band. This sucks. With all of the tragedy that has happened today the only word I can come up with is hell and I am telling you this really sucks."
