RIP John Blackwell
« on: July 07, 2017, 05:13:18 pm »

As a drummer/bassist, I've followed this guy for a lot of years. Top notch player and all around nice person. Such a shame to lose him so young. Prayers for his wife, kid, and close friends.

Amen to that!

Gotta be doing something right to continue meeting Prince's high standards for 12 years.

Just found this. Sad to see how he is in this video compared to just a few months earlier...
