larryransom A couple of years back when Revelation Records was gearing up to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a series of shows at the Glasshouse in Pomona, CA, I told Jordan it would be great to somehow honor Raybeez at the shows. He agreed and I set out to produce a short, 10 minute video. I collected up some already existing interviews from an ill-fated documentary, filmed a couple of new interviews, gathered up some photos and other miscellaneous b-roll and hit the edit bay.

I sometimes struggle with the editing process but the ease that this video came together for me and the emotional content it contained... well, it was exciting and a bit overwhelming. I wasn't sure how people were going to react to it. Especially Ray's friends.

We screened the video about 3/4s of the way through Saturday's show. Ray Cappo introduced the video, the lights went down and I projected the video on the wall inside the Glasshouse. The sold out crowd was very attentive and respectful and cheered and clapped during certain parts. My heart was racing. Earlier in the day I had worked out a surprise with the Sick Of It All guys. As soon as the video ended with it's climatic, emotional ending, the lights went up and The Alleyway Crew busted into a cover of Warzone's "As One." The transition from the video to the band was seamless and it couldn't have gone any better.

A lot of Ray's friends who were there, got choked up from the video. It was a crazy moment for me. Toby Morse was even supposed to join Sick Of It All on stage as a guest vocalist for "As One" but he couldn't because he was crying too hard from seeing the video.

The image above is a scan of Ray's funeral card which I don't think made it into the final cut of the video.

Hey Jordan, I think we should get this video online one of these days.

larryransom With all the excitement of the release party, I haven't mentioned the actual zine that much. Well, today I am in Anaheim, CA watching the pages come off the press. Blood, sweat, tears, turning into a physical, tangible thing, right before my eyes is a great feeling.

Come on down to Long Beach on the 31st and buy a copy for $5. See you then.
