Below are pictures of our buddy CaptDan at the 2015 NAMM Show in January. It was his first NAMM Show. When it was over, he said it was one of the greatest musical experiences of his life. He thanked me and thanked me over and over again for inviting him to join me on my annual sojourn. We were friends on this Tascam forum, and this was the first time we met in person. Dan's wife just told me last night that our friend CaptDan had a heart attack on Saturday and the hospital staff did everything to try and save him, but to no avail. I am saddened by this news because Dan and I talked on the phone quite a bit about mixing, recording, and guitars. As many of you know, he was accomplished in all three disciplines, and he was a semi-retired boat captain as well. I'll miss Dan as a phone buddy and on this forum. At NAMM, his greatest highlight/ happiness was seeing the great Kenny Burrell play a set at All Star Guitar Night, an event I treated him to. The look of happiness on his face was that of pure joy in seeing one of his great jazz heroes perform live. I'm glad I was able to do that for my buddy. Enjoy the pictures. Tomorrow is never promised. Me and Dan (on the right) at the Orchestral Tools Booth NAMM 2015. Dan throwing down on a Veillette Flyer archtop - he was burnin' on this guitar. Dan holding a Strandberg guitar - for my sake. He wasn't a fan! My favorite picture of Dan - playing a Roger Sadowsky archtop - he was in heaven.
