hey Marc...
been awhile since we hung out & had a few drinks together, but I still can't believe you've left us all so soon. always great to run into you when i was back in town, and I'll never forgot all the funny one-liners, & all the crazy situations with you man....like busting up that lame Emo party in '95 (wonder if they ever got that picture window replaced?), or Kevin's birthday party on the school bus up to Fremont....what an insane night that was, huh? (and hey....weren't we all roomates for a minute there too?)
always loved hangin' out at the Nassie house on 40th St. back in the good old days....talking about The Coop & the Hammer horrors, and enjoying those Jager shots upstairs...thanks for having me over man.
haven't seen you in quite a few years, but you left a lasting impression on me with your genius sense of humor and your vicious guitar shredding....you are the Glen Buxton of Omaha, most definitely. hope to run into you again one day.....somewhere better with more kicks to be had. R.I.P. Marc.....you were one of the cool ones!
