R.I.P. Criss Oliva
Criss Oliva Memorial Slideshow vol. 1
To this day Gutter Ballet remains my favorite song of all time. When I was a teenager, I saw the video for Hall of the Mountain King on MTV, and went out and got the tape the next day. I played it until it was completely worn out. The day that Gutter Ballet came out, I was in the record store getting the tape. Sadly, I never saw Criss play live, as I was just barely too young to go to the shows when they came through. I have heard him play on tape and CD thousands of times though, and will listen to him again tonight.
