Indescribably Devastating Loss

RECEIVED Sun., Sept. 8, 2019

Dear Chronicle,
    Nice job being petty by not mentioning a word about Chad Holt (10/3/1972-8/18/2019) passing away a few weeks ago. He was one of the most well-known people in this city and will be missed by hundreds if not thousands of people here, and more than likely quite a few folks around the world. I’ve been scouring your magazine since March when he made the announcement that his cancer had returned, and of course since he died last month. Not one word has been mentioned about him, and you know damn well that he was one of the most recognized people in this city. I realize that you all must still have your feelings hurt about the whole SXSW episode, but it's time to let it go. It's not good for your soul. He paid his debt. Too bad you don’t feel like you need to give him the respect he overwhelmingly deserves by giving him a few words in your magazine. Whether you guys personally liked him or not, being friends with Chad was one of the only things left about this city that still made it feel like Austin. Losing him is an indescribably devastating loss to his many close friends, the entire rock & roll community, the film community, and the last few remaining women that missed the opportunity to be charmed by him. The absence of Chad has left an immeasurable void in his friends and family's lives that will more than likely never be filled. It is an undeniable fact that he was a local icon, and the fact that you snub him in death is tacky and totally transparent. We see you, Chronicle. We ALL see you.
