Since our announcement of the tragic passing of ex-WHIPLASH/INTO ANOTHER bassist Tony Bono due to a heart attack, a number of friends, former bandmates and fans have posted heartfelt tributes to the man that was universally considered to be among the most down-to-earth, friendly and good-natured people one could ever hope to meet. Among those paying their respects so far have been ex-WHIPLASH/KREATOR drummer Joe Cangelosi, ex-KREATOR/SODOM guitarist Frank "Blackfire" Godzik, ex-INTO ANOTHER members Peter Moses (guitar) and Richie Birkenhead (vocals), respected metal journalist Don Kaye, and members of Tony's family, all of whom paint the picture of a sweet, unassuming and tremendously-talented individual who will be greatly missed.
