His bandmates in Trial posted this note:

I'll never forget Brian Redman, hard to forget a guy that was a walking party. No matter who came in contact with Brian, they were instantly attracted to him. He was one of the most sincere, sarcastic, witty, intelligent, talented guys that you would meet. Even if he was having a bad day, he put on a happy face to raise the spirits of those around him. He was a good…no, he was a great friend to all those that he cared for and cared for him.

Our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
