‘Hurts Like Hell’ by Jay Smith

‘I Have Not Been Sleeping’

“I’ve been playing rock and roll professionally for 7 years, I was raised by rockstar and I grew up in a world of rock and roll surrounded by rock and rollers. Jay Smith was the biggest rockstar I ever met. Most rockstars want people to see them as the coolest person in the room. The difference with Jay is that he made you feel like you were the most important person in the room. Anyone who met Jay felt like they were his best friend. That certainly was the case for me. He was a very important friend to me and a piece of my heart will forever be broken now that that he’s gone. He was a sweetheart and that heart of his was the size of Nova Scotia. I will think of him every time I play the songs I wrote with him and I will sing his songs for the rest of my days. I love you and I miss you brother.” – Dustin Bentall
