"Yo dude, why haven't you called me in like 2 days man?" Those were the words I would hear if i didn't call Johnny. He was the type of guy to worry about his friends. If I was ever down he would always found a way to make me laugh. Johnny at times was my music producer....sometimes he was my let's-go-to-a-bar-and-watch-the-celtics buddy.....and other times he was my "lets go to the gym man....i need to get big" partner. But one thing is that he was more than just a friend to me. He was like a brother.
It seems surreal to me to think that such an active figure in my life is gone in the blink of an eye. I can't stop thinking about the endles nights of us recording in his bedroom. I can't stop thinking about the times we got on stage and put on a show together. When my son was born he was one of the first friends to show up to meet him. And when I was feeling down, I knew that he was the best person to go to if I ever needed a person to listen to me and all I keep thinking is "who can I turn to right now?"
My heart is hurting today because of the loss of my duo, my producer, my friend, my brother..... Johnny "Korona" Pimentel. I love you man!
