A short selection
of some of Adam's memorable postings:
I know the first film I make, the
opening credits will be Pacific. . .
A while back on the board the question
of vocalists appearing on 808 tracks came up. Well, what if John Lennon were still alive?
Wouldn't it be great to hear his voice on one of 808's darker flavored compositions?
Is it just me, or does the number 808
appear in more places than just the band, machine, and area code? It seems like everytime
it's 8:08 pm, I look at a clock and notice it, without trying. I'm pumping gas, and I try
to always get 8 dollars and eight cents worth. I keep seeing it in UPC codes. Am I going
insane? Or are there other people who have seen similar things?

Cameron's posting, 15 January 2001:
I am not sure if my brother actually
posted here under the name Adam. But Adam was his name, and he did post here. He loved
808state, it was in fact his favorite music. I say that in the past tense for a reason.
Friday night at roughly 8:45pm my brother was involved in an accident. We are not sure
exactly what happened yet, but he was hit, and killed. His best friend Richard was with
him at the time, but he survived. Out of 4 people my brother was the only one to die, but
it was instant, as soon as he was hit he was gone. I can only hope he went before he knew
what was happening. I loved my brother very much and will never forget him or his love of
music. He was in a band, from their music however you could have never told he enjoyed 808
as much as he did. I will more than likely sneak a CD into his casket so he be at peace in
the afterlife with the music that brought him so much joy while he was alive. I guess it
makes me feel better to talk about it. He was a great 808state fan, as well as a great
brother, and human being.
Cameron, sorry to hear of your sudden
loss of ADAM. He was a regular on our site and though I know little about Adam. We did
notice his enthusiasm and it is appreciated. We will give him a little dedication on the
next album (shouts going out section) and wish him peace!
I never believed a discussion board
message could provide such an array of emotions. The loss of a fan with whom we interacted
with, the sincere condolence messages, the feedback from the band itself with the promise
of an album credit, up to knowing that 808 inspired Adam so much an album will be with him
always. Sales alone do not acclaim an artist, it is stories like these which reward their
creativity in the realisation that there music was a part of somebody's life......and
death. This must be a unique moment and along with the sadness we all share, 808 should
also feel very proud.
Rest In Peace Adam.
