Our friend Robin Rogers needs our prayers...

Posted on September 11, 2010 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

This sad news was in my email this morning regarding the health of Blues great, Robin Rogers. Robin is always very nice to me and always willing to sign guitars or pose for pictures. I was fortunate enough to spend some time with her in Memphis this past May for the Blues Music Awards. She is very talented and kind hearted. Please keep her in your prayers.

I finished Steve's red punch yesterday! This thing is loud and plays buttery smooth.The action is set up for fingered playing, but you can still work the slide very well

Happy Birthday Shane.
I love your work. I'm too broke and too cheap to buy, but I sure enjoy looking.

Shane, I hate to put you out, so I can try to fix it. I will most definately need your help though! Tony.
P.S. Did you get your payment from paypal?
At 2:33pm on August 29, 2009, Tony Watkins said…
Shane, Yes it is present at all levels. If I touch the output jack or the tone or volume controls it cancels out, but not when I touch the strings.
Thanks, Tony
