12/13/01 Chuck Schuldiner RIP

Time is a thing we must accept.
The unexpected I sometimes
fear.
Just when I feel there’s no
excuse for what happens,
things fall into place.
I know there is no way to
avoid the pain that we must
go through, to find the other
half that is true.
Destiny is what we all seek.
Destiny was waiting for you
and me.

I believe behind confusion,
awaits the truth for us.
Past the obstacles we face.
I value our life and trust.
Years of questioning why
things happen the way they
do in life.
Wishing that I could turn back
time, so we could join our
souls.

Day of Remembrance
Message from Chuck’s mom:
To friends and fans of Chuck.
First I want to thank you for all the emails telling me of the ways you are remembering Chuck today by lighting candles or saluting him with a drink. Whichever you choose, he would be so pleased by the gesture. I told a friend yesterday of how proud I am that he is remembered by so many, and it is always such a comfort to me on all the Decembers that have passed and those that will come.

Today I am ordering the Leprosy shirts that so many of you have asked for. Kees and Yvonne helped me with that decision and one more shirt also we chose. It will take a week or so for the order to be completed and when it arrives I’ll let Kees and Yvonne know right away. As for the album, we hope to have the good news within a couple of months that it will be resolved and ready to be completed. Things are looking very good for that to be so.

Take care,
Jane Schuldiner.

Everytime December 13th approaches, things get a bit hectic among Chuck’s legion of fans. For example, email traffic increases, new tribute concerts are announced (some of them have already taken place), and the guestbook gets a lot more visitors. In any case, the fans want to do something special and probably expect us to do something as well. Continuing a good old tradition we indeed have something special again.

Therefore we have today, December 13th 2005, on the 4th anniversary of Chuck’s passing, a video interview with Chuck & Gene on our downloads page (thanks Luca). Although it is quite a big file, we think it’s definitely worth the download time. Maybe this is a good time to finally get yourself that hi-speed connection you were thinking about for so long… who knows. Anyway, the video, from MTV’s Headbangers Ball, was taped at Amsterdam’s Paradiso and dates back to early ’95.

Second we have something very, very special too: the lost and last issue of The Metal Crusade (vol. 2 nr. 6). Digging out Chuck’s office together with Jane, we found this one, which we didn’t even know existed. Very special. And like the other Crusades, it’s again very funny with the difference that most of it was written by Chuck himself, and that this issue was never released… until now.

And finally we also added the last reviews of Chuck’s eight studio albums from the archive, all from (how fitting) The Final Verdict. Hence they are not placed in alphabetical order but at the end of each row, please check out the VIEWS. So scrutinizing these classic albums once more to get them on EW is senseless from now on, as for us the reviews from the vault are all done…

Well, enjoy all updates, happy holidays and see you next year (EW’s eighth!). Thank you Matt & Dolly (how’s your cow? “Hema is doing well” -Matt) for your continuous help and support, and for… you know… And thank you James for being there at Jane’s. Really special. Thanks again guys! To us it was a very memorable Thanksgiving week. Okay, that’s all for now and yes: there is more soon! Defenitely!
