September 17, 1962 - February 20, 2003
Tragically I lost a good friend in The Station fire. I had known The Doctor since the late 80's, he was a great guy - everytime I saw him he had a smile on his face and was always in a great mood. One consolation - although his life was cut short it was a great one. He loved rockin' at 94HJY, sports, & working at The Foxy Lady - it doesn't get any better than that!

Iíll never forget the time I ran into Doc in Toronto (see 1st 2 pictures below). I was at the Bruins last game ever at Maple Leafs Gardens and heard someone yelling "Schuster, Schuster", I turned around, and there was The Doctor!

I last heard from The Doc the evening before his death. I had invited him up to Foxboro to see his Cowboys face my Patriots - he was really looking forward to it.

Something to think about - The Metal Zoneís airwaves have been emanating from the Earth for the past 17 years - and will continue propagate throughout the universe for eternity. So itís quite possible that alien civilizations are being (or will be) introduced to heavy metal music by The Doctor.

Rest in peace Doc.


Maple Leafs Garden ∑ Toronto ∑ January 9, 1999

In 1999 I flew to Toronto to see the Boston Bruins last game ever at Maple Leafs Gardens. Before the game I heard someone yelling "Schuster, Schuster". I thought "Great, a hoser that can read", but I turned around and it was Dr. Metal! He had driven all the way from Providence to Toronto in a blizzard to see the game.

I got tickets for Ray Bourque's last game ever at the FleetCenter and John Laurenti joined us.
We had a great time that day.
