That's good that they will continue; they're plenty good enough to. It doesn't make the loss any less of a burden, but once you've gotten there, it's a given that there is no turning back. The New York Dolls, The Average White Band, Smashing Pumpkins, Sublime, Mother Love Bone, No Doubt, The Allman Brothers, Canned Heat and Pink Floyd (Syd Barrett's brain died but his body was still alive in 1967...enter Dave Gilmour) come to mind first off. Getting a recording contract...a good one...is like winning the US Nationals...it is unfortunate that some are lost in that struggle. Most of my musician friends from years gone by have either died or quit. I kept playing. I can still feel them. Your young man will carry his buddy along this quest in his heart forever. He helped get them there and his soul will stay with them. The show must go on. WC1
