Questo è, invece, il commento di Adam "Atom" Willard che ha lasciato gli Angels And Airwaves, ma che ha registrato tutti gli album finora pubblicati dagli Angels And Airwaves con Jeff Newell:
Tom DeLonge ha pubblicato su Twitter il suo ricordo per Jeff Newell:I am at a loss today, and I am truly saddened by our loss. We have all lost a huge talent, a creative genius, a friend, and an inspiration.
What Critter saw in sound, and sounds, and how he saw music in general was like nothing I have ever experienced, or likely will again. He was amazing to work with and a fascinating human being, one who could just as easily debate politics, foreign policy, music, or apple products. I will forever miss his letters, his childlike enthusiasm for music, and his un-wavering quest for the best take, the best chorus, the best song.
Good bye Critter.
Anche Matt Wachter ha pubblicato su Twitter due messaggi di ricordo per Jeff Newell:
