Brother musician (a friends passing)

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago a man I knew since I was 13 passed away. Kenny not only sold me my first 4 guitars and 3 amps he's been my guitar technician for the past 15 years. He always treated me and in turn my Father with a great deal of respect. My Dad and Kenny would have a blast negotiating back and forth on musical merchandise. In fact my Father once traded his golf clubs for my first acoustic 12 string. I'll miss my old friend. RIP brother.

So sorry for your loss of a life long friend.

When I first joined a band in was 1963, and the four of us became like brothers to each other.

Even though we broke up the band in the late 70s , we still remained friends to this day.

It would be difficult to lose any one of them.

Again, very sorry.

Sorry Cookster.

 

On another note happy birthday. Life does go on. We’ll all be there at some point. Damn that sounds depressing.

Thanks guys, Kenny was a lifelong employee at our local Mom and Pop music store. He was a terrific musician himself and whenever I'd bring something into get worked on we'd sit in his workshop above the store and talk guitars and the local music scene. He was always happy to see me walk in because he knew I had something special for him to work on. I'll miss him.
