Brian Haner Sr took to his Facebook earlier today to say the following on being in the studio with Avenged Sevenfold and Mike Portnoy:
Just got home from the studio. The guys are holding up well – given the circumstances. The album sounds amazing and Mike is just tearing it up. I wish Jimmy could be there to hear his idol play on songs he wrote. NOBODY would get a bigger kick out of it than him. Can’t wait to record my tracks and pay tribute to Jimmy’s memory.
