"It is with great sadness that I write this. My thoughts and prayers are with Vic Firth's family, friends, and colleagues at this time. He was a major part of our business and will be greatly missed by us all. Godspeed Vic Firth, a true legend."
--Nigel Olsson, July 27, 2015

"RIP Vic Firth!
HUGE condolences to his entire family and all those he worked with, taught, & inspired worldwide. Vic and his daughter were the first people in the music industry who took me seriously as a professional drummer giving me my first endorsement. I have never forgotten his loyalty and belief in me. Vic will live on through his legacy and the amazing lessons he taught us all about how to love life and live to the fullest. As a drummer, drum technician, and as a man in general, I will always remember and look up to Vic."
--Chris Sobchack, Nigel's drum tech, July 28, 2015

My hope is that this message finds you and yours doing well and happy. Please know that throughout the year I always feel very blessed to receive your messages and special gifts, but most importantly, for me, it's ALL about seeing your smiling faces at the shows and knowing you're having a great time. From myself and my family, the very best wishes for you and yours this holiday season, in 2015 and always. A very dear love and appreciation goes out to Noreen and her family for putting her all into my website, as well as my Facebook. She keeps it going and makes it happen. For that, my family and I are forever grateful. When giving to charitable organizations, please choose and support the Elton John Aids Foundation. Many thanks for your continued love, faith, support and "showing up" at the shows.

Love and peace,
