    Prayers to Reggie's family and friends. We chatted years ago on the TDP - what a kind, humble man he was.

    Never heard the name, but man I know his guitar playing! Sad loss for sure and pretty big shoes he's left to fill, but what a life he had! RIP sir

    The weirdest thing - about a week before Reggie died, I had gone to his website to email him to ask him if he taught guitar, too.. I really just wanted to hear stories.

    That was the very first solo I ever tried live when I first played out in the ‘80’s. I was and basically still am a rythym player that does some simple fills as embellishments. I must have done an OK job, there were many compliments for that one.

    Thanks for the inspirations Reggie. Most of the music you worked on, are tunes that are true classics, and are still relevant today.

    Great article in online version of Premier Guitar about Reggie. Surprised to read that the Memphis Boys were the musicians in the Box Tops "The Letter" and my favorite - "Cry Like a Baby". First time he used a sitar.
    Listening now to his first solo album 2017 "Forever Young". Black 69 Fender Tele and 65 Fender Deluxe Reverb - pretty good.
