Rest In Peace - Roger "Deke" Leonard

Deke passed away yesterday. Been listening to Deke with the Man Band and various other groups, and reading his hilarious books, for 40 years. This one hits hard. :cry:

I guess the older we get the more people we know die, at least it seems that way for me.

Sad news ....

Deke was one of the very first people who inspired me to want to play electric guitar ....

And this is the song that he did ... featured on Timmi Vance's Friday Rock Show .... a radio program I religiously listened to when I was 16.

Oh .. and Robin .... thanks for the heads up in the village. Good to be with you here. :)
