I guess we lost another amazing musician yesterday as well. RIP Lonnie Mack. He was a blazing guitarist and influential to many. He played with my band years ago. I wish we had video of it. Thanks for the music Lonnie. #RIP

  • dgarland9My father played in a band (The Classics) with Lonnie, when Lonnie was 16 years old. Cincinnati, Hamilton Ohio.

    When I was about 9, I was starting to play around with the guitar and my Dad took me to see Lonnie at a club in Covington Ky. That would have been about 1971. He was loud and awesome. After the show, Dad took me back to see him. I guess they had this worked out ahead of time but Lonnie asked me a few questions about what I was playing and gave me a Fender Jazzmaster! He told me that the guitar was as old as I was. I saw him a few years ago at the Blue Note in Cincy. Still solid and loud and awesome. Say hi to my Dad Lonnie, I know he will be glad to see you. RIP
