Lonnie Holdaway and the Hurricane CD reissues scam


Recommended Posts

I just got this email from Lonnie's nephew and he wanted someone to pass it along to the HH folks so here it is:

Hi Everyone,

This is David, Lonnie's nephew. This was the easiest way to let everyone know what has happened. Lonnie was in a severe car accident yesterday morning. We have had an unusual amount of snow and ice the last few days, and he was on his way to UPS to mail some items as well as pick some up, when an 18 wheeler came thru an intersection and lowed him in the drivers door. Lonnie was airlifted yesterday afternoon to the Trauma Center in St. Louis, where he underwent surgery for a collapsed lung. I have not been able to leave to go up there due to the weather here, but i spoke with my grandmother(Lonnie's mom) and as of this morning he is in serious but stable condition. I would just like to ask each of you to say a prayer and pass this information on to all his friends, because i know there are alot more people out there that were not in his address book.

I know he has alot of deals going on right now with all the Hurricane Reissues and all the other cd's we have been working on, so if there is anything outstanding please be patient and we will get it all sorted out for you. There are only 3 of us now, and with Lonnie being the "brains" of the company, we are all doing things we have not had to do before. So this is alot of unchartered territory for us. But I just want everyone to know we are going to do our best to keep things on par just like Lonnie would do. If anyone has any questions or needs any help with something please email us and we will get back to you asap. I know Lonnie is a member of the Heavy Harmonies community, so if someone could please let all his friends there know what is going on it would be greatly appreciated.

I will email everyone again later today with the address to the Hospital Lonnie is in, in case any of you want to drop him a card or well wishes. And if any of you want to email them here I will be more than happy to print them off and see that he gets them.

Lastly, if there are any outstanding orders please email me and i will get on that pronto for you and get whatever info i can to get it squared away for any of you. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I will be in touch with you all soon.

Sincerely
David Holdaway

Just for those who may stumble across this thread unaware, and don't read through it to the end, this so-called "accident" never occurred. It was an attempt at a diversion, after Lonnie and/or his nephew David ripped off the community members here (and others) to the tune of several thousand dollars for pre-orders of "reissues" that never existed and were never authorized by the bands involved.

Yeah, I posted this earlier today in a different section & wondered why no one had seen it yet. This is a very bad deal & our prayers are with him & his family. I wish him a very speedy recovery...

My family's thoughts and prayers go out to Lon and his family. We wish him the BEST and hope for a speedy recovery! This guy has had his share of bad luck in the last year or so and I feel for him. His back problema and now this. Life don't seem fair sometimes. God Bless Lon :)

Sorry guys,

The whole affair stinks more than a dead fish. Good "ole" Lonnie already

sent me a fake UPS waybill 10 days ago (which has not been signed or

stamped by UPS), which got approved by UPS that he never delivered the

goods, after he cashed nearly 5000$ from me.

Same thing two days ago - he confirmed that he'll ship again, but the

UPS driver didn't left a waybill - that's completely BS !

 

I'll contact paypal right now to get my money back and I'll inform the

public through melodicrock. com that there is a heavy rip off going on

with this company.

 

If you already have pre-paid your copies I can only advice to cacell the

payment if you have used paypal.

I've e-mailed George and hopefully others here will too. I gave him this threads link so he can read it for himself. Hopefully he'll understand

The thing that concerns me more is that he received the original e-mail...so he knows what is going on. Wish I did...

That's how I feel too...I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt also. I have a bad feeling though that the publicity he is going to get from some will not be too good and I hope it doesn't hurt his business. I feel bad even discussing this...his health is most important right now.

My thoughts and prayers are with lonnie at this time. I just now checked my record and i did 3 deals with Lon and 2 of those he send me extra stuff FREE. He also promptly send me Cash for what he had orderd from me, don't know the guy personally but he comes off as a stand-up guy.

 

If anyone has problems contacting him or his family for whaterver reason i have his mailing adress from our last deal if you need to contact him.

 

Godspeed Lon.

    • You're probably right it's a bad comparison but I guess I just think of the Defiants as more of a project than a band for whatever reason.  I suppose it's because they rarely play live although I know they have played a few times.  
    • Brothers In Arms-Dire Straits
    • That April Rain song sounds pretty good to me !
    • That Sammy is a top 5 release of 2022 for me. The Disturbed is also good. My daughter is getting Taylor Swift for Xmas
    • comparing this to Defiants is ridiculous- Defiants is just D2 under a different name  And it will probably be best album of 2023 
    • beautiful, all in their prime 
    • Pretty over this stupid and weak supergroup crap from Frontiers now. Feeling cynical that they are just trying to squeeze every last $ from the fanbase. Fan abuse.
    • The fundamental difference is that the mainstream media is now portraying the Chinese COVID protestors as glorious freedom fighters standing up for their inalienable human rights, where protesters in the U.S. and Canada were portrayed as terrorists, insurrectionists, and right-wing nazis by the very same mainstream media. Fuckers. I guess the current administration(s) have exhausted the money pit being diverted to Ukraine with respect to public approval, so now time to ratchet up somewhere else to send gobs of taxpayer money so that billions can be funneled back to the DNC via crypto...
    • Agree! There was a time back 5 or 6 years ago when I'd get into these project type things....Defiants, Nordic Union, etc.  And I'm sure I'll still enjoy new Defiants music when it drops. But I'm definitely saturated on these things and I'm basically to the point where I'm paying very little attention to them.  I'd rather invest my time into "real" bands that I might actually get the chance to see live someday. Like you say, I'll still sometimes check out these things and maybe I toss a song into my playlist here or there.  But odds I actually purchase an album from one of these new projects is very low.  
    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
