Matt was found by his mother still breathing but could not be revived. He was a crazy fucker but would give you the shirt off of his back. I know because I wore the one he gave me tonight. He will be missed.

the only Candy Snatcher I ever met was Larry- Matt was the guitarist, right?; those guys were so much fun live- must've seen them 6 or 7 times in Chicago and I've got a couple of their records too

They stayed with us a couple of times when Jim Weber was a roommate in '97-'98. I went with one of them out to the van & there was pornography over every square inch of the floor.

Party on, Wayne.

Fucking sucks! I really don't know what there is to add here... i never met 'em personally but at least i got to see 'em play live and hear the music,and they were indeed really fuckin' great!

I know folks that were close to him here though,and i hope they're doing OK right now. RIP...

Super nice guy. Really cool guitar style. Love all the records.
What a fucking bummer.

R.I.P. Matt.
