This morning I managed to wake to some tragic news a friend, and a previous member of this community, had suffered from a fatal overdose and passed away late tuesday evening. Greg "Hooahman" was a active member of the BIS forums, prehaps a little too energetic for his own good as his run in with Placebo ended with him being banned and outcast from this community which he loved so dearly.
With the recent death of his grandmother and his preformance at school spiralling down, this forum provided a real sense of community and belonging for him, a stability that you can only find with a group of people. Unknown to his friends at the time he was taking heavy doses of medication which compounded his already shakey mentality and with the loss of his outlet, these forums, he only sunk deeper into depression.
No one could of known such a seemingly trivial action would lead to this tragic event unfolding and I am not attempted to direct any blame at Placebo, it is completly uncalled for, but I hope we can hang our heads as we remeber the good times with Greg "Hooahman"
