S.O.D./M.O.D. frontman Billy Milano has issued the following statement regarding the recent passing of EXODUS frontman Paul Baloff after suffering a massive stroke: “When I heard the news that Paul had been hospitalized, I was in shock. When I heard of his passing, I cried. Paul was not only one of the funniest and most genuine people I have come across in this cesspool of sh.t music scene, he was my idol! Belushi-Baloff-Shatner, those are my heroes—they will always be! Every time I saw him, I smiled, every time I was in a room with him, I was invisible. Paul was more than the embodiment of the Bay Area music scene—to me he was a GOD. Peace, Paul. Your friend Milano.”
