My all time favorite band and guitarist.  Lots of memories tied to various songs.  Dude was a guitar god:

Oof. M.Brane saw them in LA (Hollywood or Pasadena, I forget which) right before they went big. I bet we'll be listening to a lot of Van Halen tonight.

Killer guitarist, what a shame. I saw them when they were touring bars in 78 or 79.
