WOW... You must have felt like Ben was there with you during the tour! Thank you Dan, for sharing what obviously is something VERY precious to you with all of us fellow admirer's of Ben. I'm SO happy that i made it a point to take my son [then 10 years old] to Meet the "REEL GILLMAN" at  a Chiller Theatre show he was a guest at a few years ago. Ben totally charmed him and i had the pleasure of witnessing the whole thing! To see this connection between my past and my son's current youth was mind blowing, to say the least. I had both Ben AND Julie Adams [also a guest at the show] sign this poster and a few years later ,when Ricou made his first appearance at Chiller i naturally had to have him add his signature to this now prized family heirloom. Thank you again Dan, for including all of us on this very special celebration of everything Ben.

  It means a lot to be able to glimpse what must have been a very emotional celebration, Dan.   Thanks so much for sharing!

In loving memory. Somehow the haunting NIN soundtrack to this tribute seems to work with the mood of the moment.


Nice job, man!

Thank you Dan and everyone else for sharing pictures and stories with us. Truely thankful!  On a side note, in the recent Scary Monsters tribute, wasnt something printed along the lines of Mr. Chapman asking us not grieve and mourn but to celebrate his life? I know I'm messing up what I read and I mean no disrespect, I'm very proud to be a fan and among people who knew him personally.

Thanks so much Ben Chapman.

I met Ben in 2000 at my first Chiller con. It was definitely a highlight. I was very saddened the day I found out he passed on.

Bennie rocked. He always had a smile on his face.
