""the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”

That quote from Jack Kerouac has always stuck to me for some reason. I've never felt a reason to use it, but it was always there, like a little sleeping dog curled up in the back of my head.

It fits Rich perfectly I think.  

Just before the quote Kerouac talked about "shambling after" the mad ones. Like he was not actually one of them, but longed to be.

I can say that I had the privilege to stride along side one for a time.  
Not as some shambling follower, but like a brother.  

O the things we did.
All those wonderful, wretched, horrible, beautiful things...
But those stories are for another time.

I parted ways with Rich a ways back, but I never actually said goodbye.

I'm not about to break with tradition now."

"RICH,..our time together was in KILLING SILENCE,..our work together will never be forgotten. I have carried our torch,..and will continue...from my soul to yours,..RIP Rich,..yes we parted,..but many stages we ROCKED TOGETHER! As we poured our hearts out onstage,.i will always remember our aggressive behavior onstage as our energy together,..LOVE AND MISS YOU MY FRIEND

"Tonight I bought an overdrive pedal and tools to fix my bass...because I just learned that Rich Penney passed away.

This man was a big brother to me, a mentor, and life guide. For three years he taught me to "shred", supplemented by mimicking and learning EVERY Killing Silence song, which I can still play today. These lessons went well beyond just playing an instrument.

When I would be on the cusp of making bad decisions, he'd talk me through why it was a bad idea. If I didn't listen, he backed me completely. This man pulled me out of the darkest place I have ever gone.

So tonight I will fix my poor, abused Fender Jazz, play along w/ Killing Silence and raise a glass to a great friend gone."

"Gena we feel your loss as well, Rich had such an impact on my sons (James & Timothy) and husband (Doug)...many,many fond memories in Davie, Florida...hanging out , fishing, sharing a meal, teaching bass guitar. I smile whenever I hear his name and oh the stories. He will always have a place in our families hearts,,,when he caught a big bass on our boat in the Everglades, his size made it look small..I always wished my small bass looked bigger because of my size but nope...Rich's smile and warmth touched us forever, he was genuine and we are so sorry that we lost touch with him after he left Florida, but we never stopped looking for him or thinking of him. Gena we are so overjoyed that You came into his life and the loved you shared. We will miss You Rich Penney - Our Friend and Brother from another Mother .
Be at Peace my friend......Forever we will remember you with love."
