VISION- IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE (Dave gave me his test pressings for helping the band but more so out of the love we had for each other.
(not a short read, but please take the minute or two)
This is the most meaningful piece of recording. Has always been, and nothing will ever change that to me!
Vision mantained, through many eras of hardcore.
When starting it was the "#Youthcrew" there was the "#alleywaycrew" which had members that were so down to earth. #Sickofitall" all super nice. They within their circle, bands #restinpieces. #Rawdeal (eventually forced to Change to #killingtime).. Etc. All defined by friendship and just the accounts of myself. There were stand out bands like #murphyslawnyc, #Cromags, #Warzone, #AgnosticFront, and atop of IT all #BADBRAINS. There were many amazing bandsno matter the allegiance fell: #enuf, #release#absolution #underdog, #bold, #youthoftoday, #gorillabiscuits, #bouncing souls #sticksandstones, #beyond, #burn, as well as out amazing friends form the west INSTED ... Etc. The list could go on forever but my point to all of this... being pretty thT Dave and I were pretty much attached at the hip. And I was able to see how much respect and acceptance into the world of NYHC, but is pride was in, NJHC.
. ALL LOVED RESPECTED DAVE FOR HIS LOVE OF MUSIC AND HIS DEDICATION TO THE NJHC AND NYHC scenes.
Which was clearly apparent at his memorial. When bands from the two aforementioned scenes as well as Icons such as #davesmalley
I've had a very hard time with the loss of my dear friend DAVID FRANKLIN. BUT TO DAY I WOKE CRAVING THE MUSIC OF #VISION AND TRULY BEING ABLE TO CELEBRATE AN AMAZING FRIEND AND LOUDMOUTH!
I LOVE DAVE FRANKLIN 💚
