I’m extremely saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Jason Lamb, one of the most unique, talented, and crazy musicians I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Jason was a legend in the music equipment industry, having designed many stellar products. Just three nights ago Jason was at our gig with me and John Lundeen. It was great to catch up with him, and to have him jump up on stage and sing a couple of songs like he did so many times over the years, Wooly Bully and Muleskinner Blues.
After the show we shot the shit until we were kicked out by the management somewhere around 2 a.m. It was fun to talk shop with Jason, as we go way back in the music biz. Jason was just forming a new guitar pedal company called EvilTone. I especially loved to hear Jason telling how young musicians were coming up to him at the NAMM show and asking for his autograph. Instead, he poured them a beer. I’m glad to have shared so many great moments with Jason, and especially to have caught up with him a few nights ago.
Rest in peace. Attached are a couple of photos I hadn’t even had the chance to dump from my camera.
