“I've worked with everybody in the security business. Guys with U2, Tool, Aerosmith, 311, Ozzfest, Phish, Jimmy Buffett, Roger Waters, Rolling Stones, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Black Eyed name them. Nobody compares to Jim Hathaway, period.

His professionalism, patience, honestly, proactivness with his advances, his skills of keeping up with what is going on out there, his ability to work with us, and not against us - all of these attributes make Jim the best in the business.

I've also had the opportunity to work with some of Jim's guys who are out on the road and they follow the same footsteps Jim has laid for them. Professional, punctual, mature, willing to treat each venue the same knowing that there are some things which change from venue to venue and market to market. It's a shame there can't be 25 Jim's running around the country - it would make my job a helluva lot easier."
