For those who may not have heard yet - May 2, 2013 - from John Crippen -I'm very sorry to inform you that that my good friend Bob Rafkin, one the best guitarists in the country, passed away this morning at 7:47 at the age of 69. His wife Kasha asked me to notify all his musician friends
Sage advice for the night- and for life: "Don't die at 40 and wait until you're 80 to be buried." Make a difference - NOW!
One bad thing about going around with the Scots a week or so back was that we had to go here and there into places with things musical as things much less expensive here in US so they were "looking" - problem is I was the one who bought stuff - found a set (5) of vintage Remo Roto-Toms so snapped those up pdq. I've never bought a set cause they're so darned expensive in relation to the extremely limited use I'd get from them - but used in conjunction with a cajon, etc. yumm - course need a truck to haul it all - so, will leave at home - but it's there!!
Also - putting on Ebay/Craigs shortly, a Mackie Onyx 1640 mixer with the firewire option card (a $350-$400 option) - only used for 1 house concert and one recording session so time to part with it as have plenty of others - all original packaging, in "minty" condition 4-bus, with manuals, cover, etc - will likely be in the $1,100-$1,300 range if you're itching to spend that tax refund check!
Just got a note from a bud about doing an ebook on Konokul so got me to thinking about some others - Frank and I keep wanting to do a series of perc. tutorials but will take him coming over here for a few weeks or us going over to Scotland for a few weeks - decisions, decisions................
