  • Dennis from Toronto, OnIt is Jon's father in law again and Nothing too Loose is a true story which happened in a School two minutes from my house. The young boy killed himself in the Auto shop. Gregory is absolutely correct. The Video was filmed in the High School the four boy met at.The song was written in the 13th year they had been together. the original name of the band was PEZ. Billy Talent is a character from a book.
  • K from Dubai, CongoIt is about a kid named Gregory Doucette from Brampton Ontario Canada.
    He was taunted to death by his schoolmates from Notre Dame High School. Shame on them!
    He was a good kid.
