A little over a month ago I had to say goodbye to another one of my friends, Leroy Wright. Leroy taught Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society) how to play guitar. I met Leroy around 2007 through a mutual friend because he needed a new web designer and (coincidentally) we both lived in the same town, Jackson, NJ. I actually went to school with his 2 daughters as well. I used to spend so much time over at his place chatting about Zakk, drinking beers, and playing guitar. He also introduced me to many cool people and connections as well. I just saw him about 2 months before he died after not seeing him in a few years and he was looking great!
RIP Leroy, you will be missed. April 12, 1957 – January 26, 2014.
