  1. I met Greg Numerious times at LEAD EAST during its annual Labor Day weekend gathering at Parsippany NJ He was,in my long going to the event the BEST individual I met at the event. Considering I have been going every year since 1983 that's saying something! But he really deserved it. He was sincere, really wanted to promote the Original rock and roll culture and he was wasn't just a fan, he was knowledgeable of the history of the music. And his enthusiasum produced a great show on a certainly limited budget.

    Over the years we have lost a LOT of great rock and roll and hot rod figures which have made LEAD EAST what it is. But when I think of it only a very, very few stand out in any of our memories. And Greg is way up in my top five great persons who ever attended. His honesty, and desire to promote the culture is why. The circumstances of his passing shocked and depressed the entire inner circle at the
    event I know. One of the people who many charged was a chief contributing factor,
    I understand, allegedly showed up the year after his passing which tremendously put off the people I spoke that year. So loved and respected was Greg to the people who ever came in contact with him.

    God's speed Greg, you were a great Guy and always a contributor...

  2. I knew Greg. I was one of the radio jocks at the same station he filmed THE PLATTER PARTY. I was actually on the air when our PD came into the booth and told me about it. I was just starting to get to know him and knew he was miserable. I didn't know why. I was talking to him at one of the Car Hops he used to do in Manassas. To the crowd he was bright, bubbly and fun. When he talked to me he was very unhappy, almost rude. He told me that soon everything would work out and he didn't have to face this world much longer. Really shook me up. He killed himself not long after that. Both I and another jock I was friends with took his death hard. March 4, 1994. I'll never forget that date as long as I live. About 8:30 in the evening I started getting this sick feeling that something was very, very wrong somewhere. Someone I cared about was hurt. I didn't know who, but I sensed it. My DJ friend who also knew Greg had the exact same feeling come over him at exactly the same time. We called each other to see if they were ok. We were both very distraught by that point and didn't know why. The very next day we found out that Greg had killed himself. Even now, thinking back on it I still that horrible rock in the pit in the stomach feeling. For many years every time the anniversary date rolled around I had a rough time getting though that day. I still wish there was something I could have done to help him. I am Bipolar so I know what a brain fryer depression can be. I have attempted suicide three times. Fortunately I worked very hard to get the treatment I needed and work toward recovery. Getting away from my abusers for good was the best thing I could ever do. I, too know what it's like to have family members regularly kick you in the face and seemingly blame you for every evil done since the crucifixion.
