Jon Stainbrook has died

Very sad news... David Turner just called to tell me Jon Stainbrook has died. After a very long battle, Jon succumbed to MS this morning. Kathy Stainbrook will send me his obituary and plans for his funeral/memorial service, which I will post here.

I am unspeakably sad about this. Jon was the first person who ever believed in me enough to hire me to play harmonica. He inspired me with his intensity. He has been part of my musical journey all these years, since 1976.

Happy trails, my friend.
