I believe he was the last surviving member. The rest had previously passed on. Hope they are having a great jam session...

Love the band, got to see them in Burnaby park in the early 90's. : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyFRNr2IgxY
Last time I saw them was about twenty years ago at Prospera, and they looked a bit comical back then, trying to jump around on stage, using body parts that were clearly unwilling. :biggrin:

Duane Eddy dead at 86yrs old.
Wow, I had all but forgotten about Mr Twang. Enjoyed his music, distinctive and recognizably his.

RIP

One of the greatest of the early guitar players.

I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

If there was no cause of death mentioned, it is very likely drugs or suicide. I was told this by the local coroner many years ago.

Huge loss for Canadian journalism, and everyone who values commons sense over ideology. One of the greatest columnists ever. Always enjoyed reading his pieces.

The last of the free thinkers/speakers. Always brought humour to the table when discussing the faux pas of politicians and their foolishness.

RIP Rex.

You are missed.
