"It was an incredibly rough day for me, I can't imagine what it was like for his family and Cassie [Armand's longtime girlfriend Cassandra Dines]. Needless to say, no one saw this coming.
"I thought I had a great guitar tech until the day I retire.
"Life is short. Enjoy what you have while you have it.
"I was one of the few lucky ones. I saw him Friday, played him some new Slayer and watched him bang his head and play air guitar.
"What a great dude!! I even got what may have been his last man hug.
"Love ya, buddy."
Here's some video footage of Armand Crump taking Dunlop TV through King's live rig back in 2010.
