GUEST,GUEST Obit: In Memory of Argyle Bell (1951-2001) (19) RE: Obit: In Memory of Argyle Bell 1951-2001 23 Aug 19


I was just thinking about Argyle today and trying to find that tribute online that his friend Greg Walker wrote about him. I read it years ago and Greg did such a good job writing that. Anyway I used to work at a local hipster store in Nashville where Argyle was a regular, and one day around March or April of 2001 Argyle brought us in a few music related things of his to sell. We bought most of it but a couple of things we had to pass on because of copyright issues, but these items were very cool. Argyle handed them back to me, and with his normal smile said, "please keep these for yourself and enjoy them; I'm not going to be needing them". I thanked him and thought nothing of that comment until I heard the news of his passing. I was very saddened, because I realized from his "I won't be needing them" comment that he was already thinking about ending his life. I still miss Argyle and think about him to this very day.
