Tawn Mastrey's Legacy

Tawn is Remembered By A Fan

Of all the well wishers who have contriubuted memories of Tawn, we found this one to be the most poignant.

Having been a personal friend of Tawn's it has hit me hard, it has hit our band hard since we headlined the TRIBUTE FOR TAWN to help start the awareness dealing with her plight.

Tawn is now at peace. No more pain or waiting for an organ to come in. She is gone, buw will never be forgotten. Not by the millions of fans that she had, not by the Rock Bands and musicians that she helped lauch their careers, not the the hundreds and thousands that knew of her health issues and not by the band METAL KNIGHTS. The fact that our lead singer Razor was a friend of Tawns makes it all the more hard. Razor was a Rock DJ in the late 80's thru the mid 90's and it was TAWN that took him under her wing and did whatever she could to help a rock jock on a station in Palm Springs try to get noticed in the huge LA market. She helped by setting up interviews for Razor to interview Rob Halford, members of Iron Maiden and Kiss for his show the HARDLINE. When NO ONE ELSE IN LA RADIO cared, Tawn did.

Razor had another connection to Tawn, and that he too suffered from Hep C, and was blessed enough to recieve a life saving transplant in April of 2005.

We all morn the passing of a great, fighting spirit who was a good person. She will be missed, but NOT FORGOTTEN.

Her legacy will be that she was a great Rock Broadcaster, music was her life, helping people was her life, and in the end, that was what she told me last I talked to her. Win or Lose, people need to know that organ donation is serious, and we need to come out of our shell about it. Tawn, you will be that face. That face that people in the Rock music world will remember as the fighter who wanted the world to get tested for HEP C and to sign up to be an organ donor. You were a hero to many, me for sure, and I will always love you for what you did for me, and for the fight you fought to help save lives, even as yours was being taken away.

Rest sweet my dear, I know there is a great cantina in heaven, where Jimi, Janis, Randy, Dimebag Jim and all the greats are jamming tonight with you there, ROCK N ROLL ANGELS save us a bar stool, and have the tunes cranked because we never know when we might come be with you, until then sweet princess of the airwaves, may God bless you and keep you forever in that special Rock N Roll part of heaven, and rest now, we all know you deserve it.

With all our love to The Mastrey family,

Razor
and METAL KNIGHTS
