|Article on his suicide... |
CC was a common fixture at so many Twisted shows...I first met him at the Danbury show in CT. 2003. He was running around outside with lime green tights on, I just had to give him a hug....he was such a comedian and full of life. Below is an interview he did with TS. I hope now he has found peace...
Here is CC at a TS Christmas show with the long blonde locks....such a gentle sweet fella....
also some pic's on this page with the boyz...
I am going to miss his free spirit at the shows...

|Thanks for sharing this sad news. I do remember him from some of the shows--we chatted briefly about his photography. I'm so saddened that he felt so alone without options without knowing or realizing how many people care about him and miss him. |
my thoughts to all of his friends and family--so tragic.

|Sorry to be a little late on this one having just lost my cousin to lung cancer. |
AJ Tony Confessori (CC) was a friend and a part of our dvd post production crew along with Dave Streicher. The idea of suicide as an answer has always mystified me. I have been in that long tunnel of depression. I contemplated it once when I was 22. The darkness past. i don't want in any way to come across that I felt the mental pain of Tony. I just wished for him to have been able to come out of the pain before making that last and final decision. He was always gracious and a gentleman. I can only send my condolences to his family and loved ones. It really puts so much into perspective. That may sound like a cliche but I sat it without irony or cynicism. It just is a damn shame. may he rest in peace
|I used to see CC at the KISS Expos all through the 90's in Hackensack as well at Chiller every year. Very nice guy. R.I.P. : (|

|Sorry for the loss♥ of your cousin and AJ Jay Jay....I struggle to understand the act of suicide as well. I think so many of us have been to those darkest, very personal moments in life...but thankfully there was some ray of hope that pulled us through. "Until you walk a mile in my shoes......" Just incredibly sad that AJ couldn't find that ray....he was so kind and gentle, always smiling and bringing joy to those around him. |
"A smile can hide a thousand tears
Keeping lies unknown throughout the years
Hiding away one's darkest fear
But it never heals the pain"
