R.I.P. Jonathan Richard Hughes
It is with great sorrow that we say good bye to one of our own tonight – He was a little brother to us all, a hard working and loyal young man who unfortunately had his life cut short. I can’t thank him enough for all is help over the years – He was not just our Merch guy. He handled many duties and was helpful with many aspects of our “business”. His input creatively with merchandising was always welcomed and greatly appreciated. On the personal side – we broke bread more times than I can count and shared many tales and good times. There will forever be a void in our camp without “the kid”. We send our condolences with much love out to: Barb,Jen,Lydia and the entire Hughes Family.
To my fellow highway man, continue on your Journey friend, we’ll see you again…….
Love Always, Freddy,Hoya,Mitts and Mike – Madball

Very sad news
Our brother Jonathan Richard Hughes passed away yesterday.
DIM may be just 5 on stage but we are way more “behind the curtain” and JON was a true Devil in me.
He was responsible for lots of the good things that happened to us in last years.
A true friend and a great person.
You will be missed and loved forever brother.
See u soon
DIM ARMY !!!
