Thread Name: Rick Fielding's passing. (March 20, 2004)
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's passing.
To Heather--heartfelt condolences and sympathy from Lisa Null and me, and whatever comfort your friends here can bring you, now and in the future.

I first met Rick when he came to play in Washington DC back in 1999. It was the beginning of long admiration for both the man and his music. I got to know him better here at Mudcat, and then when he came to the FSGW Getaway.

I think the line for guitar lessons is forming three hallways down on the left from the Pearly Gates. With his infinite patience, everyone in heaven will get a turn. The heavenly music of the guitar will supplant a lot of harps.
