John Stannard

Postby lo&m on Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:52 pm

It is with a heavy heart that I report the death of John Stannard, known as Big John in his adopted home of Austin, Texas. John was on of the foremost guitar pickers in country music, playing the 'chicken-picking style on his beloved Telecasters. The forum's condolences and sympathies go out to his wife, Mandy Marie. And secondly to his picking partner, David Hartley.
Let us remember him this way ...

Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.

That is so sad! John and I had tried to catch up in Austin when I had been over in the last few years but our schedules never worked out! Damn - wished I tried a bit harder. What a great player!
