Steve was definitely one of our PAGG highlights every year as well. Always a great story with a smile. He didn't go to PAGG to play, he went to share good times with friends and made this little show feel like a big family reunion.
He made bulletproofing those insane Gottliebs look so easy. His vast knowledge was legendary and, thankfully, he was very happy to share that knowledge with us. I was looking forward to asking him a billion questions about the Punk we picked up after he kindly shared his with all of us, or the Black Hole project I bought knowing that I had a friend who would make sure that game would work 110% better than when it left the factory.
My goal now is to have both of those games absolutely ready to share the System 80 lineup at this year's Pin A Go Go and, honestly, if they break down mid way through the show, well, that's just more proof of how much we needed Steve Charland to keep them working.
Anyhow, I don't have to tell any of you how much he'll be missed. But, here are a few pics I've taken of Steve I wanted to share.
