CHUCK SCHULDINER's Mother On Auctions/Benefits And Second CONTROL DENIED CD

Jane Schuldiner, the mother of late DEATH/CONTROL DENIED frontman Chuck Schuldiner, has issued the following statement regarding any upcoming auctions and benefits on Chuck's behalf, as well as the possibility of a new CONTROL DENIED album, the plans for which now appear to have been put on hold:

“On the advice of Chuck's attorneys, any permission for benefits, auctions, or anything else pertaining to Chuck Schuldiner are to be given by Chuck's attorneys only. Any others are unauthorized and not supported by Chuck's family, and will be dealt with by these attorneys. This is being done because of problems due to mishandling and confusion in the past, to protect the fans and Chuck's interest. Please contact me at the email address [email protected] and I will give you telephone numbers and addresses. The names of these attorneys are Rick Muser, New York and Scott Corbett, Orlando, Florida. I will be in touch soon with more information concerning this situation.

“Also, nobody has permission by Chuck's family to accept donations of any sort, money or merchandise or anything else, in Chuck's name or on his behalf. These can be sent to me, Jane Schuldiner 613 East Citrus Street, Altamonte Springs, Florida 32701, as they were in the past. I have friends of Chuck's helping, and all will be appreciated and acknowledged by me. Also, unless it is issued by Beth Schuldiner [Chuck's sister] or the above attorneys, ignore any news about the new CONTROL DENIED album. Attorneys are at this time reviewing options and contracts and any decisions will be done in Chuck's interest. I had many talks with Chuck about people not doing things in his best interest, and being fully aware of behind the scenes manipulation detrimental to his best interest, his wishes for the album were made clear. Remember what Chuck always said, SUPPORT MUSIC, NOT RUMORS!

“Even though it was a very tough battle at times, Chuck always stayed clear-minded and positive that he would get well, to the very end of his life, literally. His many fans and friends are responsible for that positive attitude because you always gave him that hope with your e-mails, cards and letters. And now your sending e-mails [is] helping his family through the most difficult time of our lives, trying to cope with the loss of the most wonderful person I have ever known, a much, much loved and missed son, uncle and brother. As his sister said, life has a haze over it with Chuck gone, and life will never be the same.

“Thank you for your support.
Jane Schuldiner (Chuck's mom)”
