Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's banjo
I will ask Paul Mills if he would know why. My guess is that Jeri has it right though.

As to his leather work, it was superb. I have many of hisleatherworking tools and a ton of his handdrawn patterns. It is my intention to make myself a Fielding strap using his patterns.

I just spoke with Heather a couple of days ago.

Yeah, Spaw ....... I know how you feel. His influence is all over my music. I open my labor rally concerts with his Voices of Struggle. Later in the set I do his Pitmans Blues.

All the best,
