Knowing a thing or two about this guy, I wouldnt use the word successful to describe him. Hes a middle aged man who lives with his mother still and promotes small time shows. Having talked to him and hearing other bands "horror" stories of dealing with him, i can say hes got the maturity level of a middle school child and Really havent heard many people with anything good to say about the guy. I always got a creepy vibe from a middle aged man who associatied himself with teens.
Eh. I didn't know the part about living with his mother. Hah.
