Anyway, when Adrian set up his own message board I was active there too. It was smaller, but generally had a friendlier tone (at least thatís how I remember it). Through that board I made contact with people whom I still stay in touch with to this very day. Even though I didnít talk with Adrian for years, Iím still grateful for making those friendships I made possible.
He also took the time to listen to and review some of my music at a time when very few others would (not that anyone listens to it these days either) and he was always very supportive in that regard. I will always be grateful for that too.
Like I said earlier, I didnít have any contact with him over the last few years, but every time Iíve listened to The Beach Boys since those days, the memory of Adrian has flashed by. And Iím convinced it always will.
So, thanks Adrian for hooking me up with people I today call my friends. Thanks for being supportive and believing in me. Iím listening to Smile and hope youíre finally at ease. Rest In Peace.
