Hi beer

many thanks for your info on Red.

I am sorry to hear he is not with us any more. My belated condolences go out to his family.

I didn't know him but had seen him a couple of times.

I was entranced by his playing and I tried to "borrow" some of his style when I performed some of Gordon's songs.

The nearest I got was on my own version of Me & Bobby McGee but I know I didn't do Red any justice with my rendition.

Thanks once again....sad news
