Li commented:

“I’ve been a huge fan of Jason Becker since I was young, and it’s one of the biggest honors of my life to be able to help organize this tribute and raise money for him. I still have a Jason Becker poster in my studio in London. It’s been very inspiring to see everyone coming together to celebrate Jason.”

Becker added:

“I am so grateful for all the love and support everyone has given to me and my family. As far as selling my guitars being sad, and that I shouldn’t have to do it, I just want you to know that isn’t how I feel. It makes me happy to see others playing my music. I feel good about passing on my guitars, thinking they mean something to others. I can’t play them now, but other folks can. That’s a good thing. And, I want myself and my family not to have to worry about money, if possible. Thank you for all the love, I send it right back to you.”

Phil Labonte Says All That Remains “Can’t Do Anything” That Has Late Guitarist Oli Herbert’s Name On It

During an interview with American Songwriter, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte revealed that the band “can’t do anything” with late guitarist Oli Herbert’s name on it due to the financial dispute between them and his widow Elizabeth Herbert. This includes benefits that the group wanted to do in his honor.

Labonte said the following:

“We talked about ideas to do a benefit to raise money for kids in schools, but we can’t do anything that has his name on it.”

He also went on to say that the band have always paid everything owed to Herbert’s estate:

“We’ve made sure that that our accountants and all the people that work with us know any money that is owed to Oli Herbert’s estate must be paid to Oli Herbert’s estate. And we have absolutely no interest in not paying. It’s not worth any kind of hassle for the amount of money.”

He also added the following about wanting to start a school music program in honor of Herbert:

“Oli absolutely loved music. And I would love to see kids that don’t feel comfortable, the kids that are kind of awkward, or a little weird—I would love to see them look at Oli and be like, ‘I could be a rock star too.’ Because Oli, he was kind of a weird dude too.”

As previously reported, Oli passed away in October 2018 and police were investigating his death as suspicious. His body was found in a pond near his home in Stafford Springs, CT and he had unprescribed antidepressants and sleeping aids in his system. Elizabeth later revealed that his death was the result of drowning by issuing an odd sounding statement.

One week before Oli’s death, the guitarist also signed a will making Elizabeth the sole executor and benefactor. It also said that his sister Cynthia Herbert was not allowed to become executor or receive anything from his estate and that Elizabeth would get all “property as well as any current or future earnings.”

Labonte previously expressed frustration with the lack of an arrest in Oli’s death, while seemingly referencing Elizabeth, who he previously called a “garbage human being.” Fans and friends have long thought Oli’s death was suspicious and were previously sharing evidence on a Justice For Oli Herbert Facebook page.

All That Remains Frontman Phil Labonte Calls For “Article V Convention To Either Bring The Federal Government Back In Line With Its Constitutional Limits Or Abolish The United States Entirely”

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte has shared a letter he wrote to New Hampshire governor Chris Sununu in response to the banning of Donald Trump from social media following the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The frontman says that he believes the “looming threat of censorship is far bigger than one president’s Twitter account” and that lawmakers should support “an Article V Convention to either bring the Federal Government back in line with its Constitutional limits or abolish the United States entirely.”

Labonte said the following:

“January 9, 2021 at 13:03

Governor Sununu,

I am writing to express my support for an Article V Convention as outlined in the United States Constitution. There are multiple social media platforms and service providers that are, as I type this, in the process of purging libertarian and conservative voices, including President Donald J Trump While I am under no illusion about the right of a private company to have sole discretion over who is and is not allowed to use their services. I believe this action is part of a broader attempt to silence views that less than a decade ago would be considered entirely anodyne. The silencing of any voices, even those that would express truly abhorrent opinions, is a far greater threat to our country than those opinions themselves.

I am not a supporter of President Trump. I did not vote for him, but this looming threat of censorship is far bigger than one president’s Twitter account. I believe, and fear, that the violence that occurred in Washington D.C. on January 6th is only a taste of what is likely to come in our country. The suppression of opinions deemed unacceptable and the efforts to censor are indicative of, what seem me to be, irreconcilable differences – and I worry that it could further add fuel to the fire.

There is no reason we must be ruled by a central government so far removed from the needs and concerns of so many different people and cultures spread so for across this country. The political opponents of those who are being silenced have expressed a strong desire to ensure that they will be able to force through their own political agenda that entirely disregards the opinions of small government liberty minded people like myself. I believe it’s better that we have a convention and dissolve the union entirely a peaceful and constitutional manner than to be forced to live under what by any standard can be called tyranny.

I have lived in NH for a decade now. I moved here from Massachusetts due to what I felt are overbearing and unreasonable laws. Should the Federal Government act on the promises of the incoming administration there will be no place to move to that will offer sanctuary.

I voted for you Governor, please support an Article V Convention to either bring the Federal Government back in line with its Constitutional limits or abolish the United States entirely.

Sincerely, Philip S. Labonte. Hnsdale, NH”

Donais added:

“Working with Lost Symphony was such a blast for me! It’s an honor to play on a project with some of the best heavy-metal [and] rock guitarists out there. This is a must for anyone who loves shred guitar!”
