For Dave

"Good one Jim. Got in church this morning, sat down, and thought of Dave, and said a prayer for him, the family and friends. I didn't have the closeness, that some of you had, but had a lot of respect for all of his talents that he shared."

Never know!

A while back a fellow came into my shop in WV while visiting his parents who live nearby. He purchased a Gourd Banjo and CB Fiddle, my two highest priced items, saying he was a musician and composer from California. I got nosy and looked him up. This is him!!

Lost two friends today within 24 hours. One was a well known rockabilly guitarist and bass player for Danny Gatton and the Fat Boys.  Billy Hancock used to come to my gigs and be real supportive of what I was playing.


The second friend was less well known but we played gigs together since we were teenagers. Here's to you Chuck B

I thought so too but, when I tried to send you a message you didn't appear in the list.  Anyway, I know you are a busy fella but let me know if you are interested in the Fade to Black tune.  AP says you are the perfect guy and he has plans for a video as well. I don't have any time table on it, just at your leisure if you are interested.
