Also on the RESPONSE NEGATIVE front, Gustafson has issued a statement on the group's web site regarding his exclusion from Guitar World's list of top 100 greatest heavy metal guitarists of all time. Says Bobby, "I must give a heartfelt and sincere thank you to Mark Dykstra and all who e-mailed in to Guitar World in disgust, especially to Matt O'Donnell, someone who I have never met but obviously has been touched with my music. He felt so compelled to stand up for me and write a letter to Guitar World about the exclusion of my name on their list of the 100 best guitarists. To him an extra special thanks to a true fan and friend whose courage to speak up will not go unnoticed by me or my band."

RESPONSE NEGATIVE recently completed a five-song EP at Studio 13 with producer Jeremy Staska. Mastering duties were handled by Mike Fuller.
