As much as the man had deplorable behaviour and was, to put it mildly, quite quick to trick customers and act like a complete douche on occasion, stating any of this isn't what made me say what I did.

There's a time for everything, and maybe I'm just a silly idealist, but even with all the internet anonymity, there is a certain consideration we should have for fellow men, so that retarded shit like MrBlarghzoid15960 going "lolfag I bet he digz boys die fuker" and similar trash, albeit more well-written, remain as far away from SS.org as possible. This isn't 4chan, now is it?

Again, different opinions.

Okay... Whatever will keep this thread on topic. If we keep this up this is going to turn into the last one.

People having legit opinions on him, and retards just wanting to cause a scene are two different things. Consideration is given to those who deserve it. Can't expect things from other people that you haven't given. Of course

Never knew him, but I`m glad the stories on the website distracted me from buying his guitars though. Thanks Ed Roman for saving me from scammers.

After having dealt with Ed Roman in the 80's and 90's I have as much negative to say as anyone else. BUT, I recently met someone whose mother dated Ed Roman in the early 80's and it turns out that although he may have had the worst of business practices, he treated this guy pretty well. This includes Ed sending a guy with a Yamaha cruiser to the kid on his 12th b-day when he said he wanted a bike etc. So although I still get angry every time I think about dealing with Ed or ECMM, I guess there was a side to him we didn't see.

I think his website speaks for itself (racism, plagerism, bullshit/etc...) but he was mildly entertaining like DeVries. Remember that one time he stole someone on this forums picture and then the guy swapped it to porn?

As sad as this may sound that is still fondly carved in to my memory

Though I can't say I'm sad about this or do I ''feel for his friends and family'' (I never met a single one of them), I do hope he rests in peace. I'm sure there were some people attached to him outside of his flamboyant career that feel his loss so I can say I am sorry to them.

That said, now we need to hope the remaining ER staff doesn't carry on his business antics.

Remember the ''Tone king'' (sorry, but lol) coming in here when that review of his Quicksilver guitar was posted?

Just to clarify, it wasn't porn... but infinitely better.

Business wise, I've heard some bad things.

That said, he was still a human being and sought after the same ambitions and desires we all do. I hope his family is coping with it well around this time of year.

The fact that this guy died doesn't mean we should laugh off all his unethical and wrongful business practice. Those should be forever condemned not tolerated.

That said I'm not surprised the guy did help someone and was a good man to those he didn't scam. He deserves his RIP.

His rant articles are shit though.
