A sad day for me, to find that my old friend has passed away. I lived with John, his brother Jim who was also a bass player, Marc Marcano (Rockets) and Drew Abbott (Silver Bullet Band) for a few years back in the early 70s in an old farmhouse on Auburn Road.
What a house full of music that was, always a band rehearsing in the basement. I spoke with John by phone a few years ago, and found that his brother had died, also of a heart attack. John was simply the most kind gentle and funny man I've ever known.
I hope he and his brother have put together and all-bass band wherever they are. I've attached a photo of John and Jim from a party many years ago. Not a great photo, but if you want to post it, feel free.
Thanks for putting such a nice tribute up on your web site.
Thanks so much Ron for the lovely note. I have received a lot of really nice letters about John.
