Brett's father, a.k.a. Big Dick. Both the BR EP and How Could Hell... were financed by a loan from him. With Epitaph, because they were a partnership, BR had to pick an outside party as a co- signer on every check, and they chose him too, because Jay trusted him more than anyone else he knew (because he was a successful and clever business man, and Jay had spent many nights talking to him about what BR were doing, what they were trying to accomplish, etc.).
