It is with the greatest sorrow and sadness that I let you all know John passed away this afternoon. So many people have posted messages of love and condolences on his phone. I am trying to figure out how to post on any of his fb pages. I appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. One of his favorite quotes was “All that you can take with you is that which you’ve given away”. From reading your messages, I know he gave much away and so much love was sent to him.

I never met him in person but he would comment and like my posts and always wish me a happy birthday. It seems like small things and maybe they are, but it meant something to me. Someone who hears from people all over the world and took a moment to say hello. That’s the kind of guy John was and the world is less pleasant without him. Rest in peace.”

He was also a genuinely nice gentleman which makes this harder. For people are not aware,JOHN for many years backed PETER FRAMPTON. He also played with ACE FREHLEY’S COMET. Suffice to say live each and every day the best that you can. Respect one another. Please support live local music.”
