Peace & light Sid McCray. He introduced H.R to punk. There’d be no Bad Brains without the brotha.

I haven’t looked at this thread in a minute and was looking for the name of the song I remember posting in here..

just thought I’d tell tell my personal story and friendship with Riley.. first things first..


Riley was a legit aas dude, through and through. Genuine fukking dude, humble as hell and would become friends with you instantly. I had become friends with him through friends of a friends, Franz of Turnstile actually when Power Trip brought him on tour with them to sell merch. During the shower before they played and after we hung out in the bar kicking it drinking beers and he treated me and we talked like we known each other our whole lives..

when Riley passed away I was legit shaken up because him and I talked a bunch of times about our internal metal health struggles (bipolar) and connected about things he was dealing with on and off tour. It was never revealed how he actually passed and people assumed it was drugs but knowing him and I conversations I believe it was not that and it sucks.

Power Trip was one of the best modern bands and made me excited for hardcore music again. And I wish I made more effort to see them and hang out when they came around. Still sucks and I get bummed over it from time to time.

Peace & Light to another one we lost too soon.
