Thread Name: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
Subject: RE: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
Never mind that last post (unless you want to buy his guitar), I just thought I'd refresh this thread for the memories.

I saw Heather a couple of months ago and she told me that from the moment I took an interest in the guitar hanging on his wall (OK, OK, drooled all over it as I clasped it in my bony fingers) he started "interviewing" me to see if I would be a suitable owner for it.

Never really thought of that. All I knew was when I asked if he was interested in selling it, he said "yes", named a more than reasonable price, and let me pay $200 down and take the guitar with me with a promise to settle the balance within a few months. (I live 250 miles from Toronto). And I had never met the guy before.

Rick, we miss ya.

Oh yeah, that song I mentioned writing, "511 Highway", has become my most requested original. I think of all this stuff every time I play it.
