Hi Chris
Jon Bessent passed away several years ago.
Here's a link.
I don't want to take away from Riches passing, but I think Jon was right up there with Willie and Rich.
There are few remaining souls who have the depth of Willie, Jon, ans Rich.

Hammond101 took the time to reply to my newbie questions a few times.

I wasn't around in the day's that Jon Bessent posted here.

Condolences to both of their families.

Rich was recently giving me advice about a 79 Champ. Very sad to hear. He was very helpful.

RIP Hammond101

So sorry to hear this. I agree Willie, Guitar and Amp techs do hold up a large part on the FDP. And lets not forget People who know the history of guitars and basses.

Hi!

Thank you all for the info - and my sympathy to anyone who knew him.
May he rest in peace and not be forgotten.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone of you guys for keeping up the good work, for sharing a wealth of information - and for keeping up the good, kind & helpful atmosphere here on the FDP for over 20 years!

cheers - C.
