The gist of the post was what he means to me. Matt’s very important to me, because it was him that inspired me to even pick up sticks. You could argue that is was Guns N’ Roses as a band, and he was “just the drummer” at the time, but I had (and still have) a lot of admiration for him. He was THE guy. So to me that made/makes him incredibly important.
