    Russ Greilich is a sound engineer who worked as a professional musician in the San Francisco Bay Area. He’s been with the Golden Era Musicians for 30 years. He also has worked with Mr. Miscavige extensively as a mixer and sound engineer on the sound restoration of all of the Founder’s lectures on Dianetics and Scientology. He has given a poignant personal interview and additionally spoke in a joint interview with other musicians. In his joint interview with Carl Leach, Tom McMurray and McHenry Ellis, Russ notes that Ron Miscavige’s escape story he tells in his book and to the media is ludicrous: “I mean, the bottom line is, Ron says that he wanted to leave for a number of years. So my question is, and I know the answer, why didn’t he? The reason he didn’t, and he could have, at any point in time, is he was actually running a con here. He was living for free. He was actually doing nothing, yet because everybody respected the fact that he was Mr. Miscavige’s father, we’re trying to help him, and he would twist that help and he was getting a free ride. It’s absolutely disgusting that he has now taken that same con, which is the fact that he’s Mr. Miscavige’s father, and he’s using Scientology and Mr. Miscavige as a carrier wave for press and publicity to try and sell this this book that is actually a turn on his own flesh and blood. It’s really, really sickening.”
