David Gold of the Canadian metal band Woods of Ypres.

Actually used to work with him years ago, back when he was first putting his band together. Hadn't seen him in a few years. Very funny, intelligent, talented and passionate guy. A terrible loss.

Didn't know which one Mr. Sefelt was, but when I saw that he was in The Hustler, I figured out who he was.
