Mark will truly be missed, he was one of the greatest guitar players of our time and a really sweet and quite guy. As my friend Jack said, "A man of few words", RIP Mark. Condolences to his family, the band and all my fellow Starshippers out there.

With all due respect to Mr. Abrahamian, he has NOT "played with ACDC".
