Jane Schuldiner, the mother of the late DEATH/CONTROL DENIED frontman Chuck Schuldiner, has spoken out about the attempts being made by her son's fans to get Chuck on the cover of an upcoming issue of Guitar World magazinean effort that started peacefully on the GW message board but appears to have since deteriorated into a sea of pointless insults and verbal bashing. Says Ms. Schuldiner:I know Chuck wanted to be on the Guitar World cover, but it was in the days when the magazine represented a different image than it does today. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Chuck's reward for his music was for the only people that mattered to him, his fans. He told me that shortly before his death, during one of our many talks while reading his email to him. And most important, the fans let him know it while he was still here to enjoy it. That gave him immense pleasure. I hope you all remember that and let it go.
