  1. AJ was my favorite of the classic lineup. Great drummer. He will be missed.


  2. Dave Scallon Says:

    Hell no, I only have one Sister album, but damn. Rest in Peace Brother the Sisters will never be the same without you and the world will be a lot quieter as well.
    My respects to his family.


    • Which one do you have? I think TS are calling it a day after this last tour out of respect to AJ.


      • Dave Scallon Says:

        Come out and play, apart from the first track the entire album is great.
        It will not surprise me, a few great bands have ended after the death of a member.


      • Stay Hungry is considered their best album but my personal favourite is You Can’t Stop Rock and Roll. Both albums are great as is their first one. As for great bands ending after a member’s death, Led Zeppelin comes to mind.
