Dude, I think about that quite frequently. How would we know if they died? They'd just stop showing up and we'd just assume that they're too busy. None that I know of.

GT members don't die. GT members multiply.

Yeah, I can't stop thinking about it either. My friend is a member on the Pearl Drummers' Forum, and there was this thread once commemmorating some well-liked member who got in a car accident and died. All I could think was "wow, how did they find out?"

Someone on the Pearl drummers forum died? I was wondering why the world suddenly felt like a better place.

it depends on how well the guy/girl is known on the forum, never experienced someone dying on a forum, though they could've, many that were never heard off again :rolleyes:

reminds me of a band from around here, that made a song 'crash and burn' about a friend of theirs, who had a car accident, I really respect such things

That's such a terrible thought... I mean, people could still be talking about the person who died as if they were still alive, for some time after they actually died. Sorry, that was a retarded sentence , but you get what I mean, don't you? I mean, Stackny was away for the past week; imagine if we'd been having conversations about him, and expecting to hear all his news from him, and he'd died in a car crash while he was away - we'd have absolutely no way of knowing.

Well if I died, you'd find out from acapella. The rest of you....I don't know. I guess we would probably never know.

Is acapella dead, or defecting from Canada or something? Haven't seen much of him lately.

He's probably just hiding out. He doesn't want to get banned, and everything he says is highly offensive.

Ha, the funny thing is all you have to do on an internet forum is not write s***. I do realize, however, that you're probably joking and I just made myself look like an idiot. :p

acapella won that tonja renee song thing so he was here.. and also what if you both die? and why do we care? if we stop writing to the forums, we're dead to the forums. if we die, we're dead to the forums. both ways were still dead, and maybe even if we all chatted and stuff, we really dont know each other and dont even know if we were rally friends. we dont know each other. thats' like donald trumt dieing and everybody in the world crying. if bill gates dies though, i guess ill leave my computer off for 24 hours.

I wonder where all his money would go? Spread out to the world? Charity? Family?
