I miss you, Paul. Hardly a Yellow Brick Road show goes past without the mention of your name. I had the good fortune to not only have worked with you, but to call you my good friend. You were one of the great ones.

I still try to text you about grabbing dinner, I still think about you every day, it still doesn't feel like you are gone. I love you very much, you were an incredible father, and there were so many things that we hadn't talked about yet. I miss you. I hope you are at rest, and that I will meet you again.

Paul, your passing left a huge hole in many of us who loved and cared for you. Our weekly get-togethers for beers and deep conversation, I will miss forever. You were a magician at the sound board and my voice will never sound the same without you.

Paul, You are missed. But instead of being sad, I choose to remember the last day mixing Be Satisfied, when you turned to me and said, "Remember when Hairy tried to pull out his own tooth?" Funniest. Studio. Moment. Ever. A happy journey to you. I will see you soon.

Paul, you were one of the first friends I made when I moved back to Vegas. You had an excitement about you and you showed me so much about music and myself. I am so saddened to hear about this; it breaks my heart. You will be missed. You inspired and taught me more than you know. Rest in peace. Love you.

I can not believe another beautiful human being has been snatched from sharing their life with us. Why? That's all I ask of the Lord above. Why?

On behalf of Alter'd Ego, we are all saddened to hear the news of the sudden passing of our dear friend Paul Petronsky who was our sound engineer of many years (at the Boulder Station Railhead Showroom) for Alter Ego (1999 2006) and Alter'd Ego (2007 2015). We've all had the personal pleasure of working with Paul, enjoyed his keen sense of humor, thoughtful and wise sound mixing suggestions, his genuine team spirit and kind heart along with his expert professional knowledge of balancing sound for our band; Paul got our sound in the pocket every time! His generous giving spirit to help assist us with sound issues in our rehearsal room and numerous phone calls over the years were always answered with a cheerful reply and the patience to guide us through whatever sound issues we were facing.

Paul, our dear friend, you will be greatly missed. May you rest peacefully, knowing how many hearts you touched through your unselfish talents in sound engineering, music production and photographywe will miss you very much.

Our love and prayers to your family and friends.
