Thread Name: 2016 Obit: Don Shepherd
Subject: RE: Don Shepherd - is he still around
I don't know if Don's about as I've not seen him since sometime around 1964 where he was living in Larkhall Rise in Sth London.
I used to take my mouth organs along to his place, but can never recall playing anything (!) as I was overawed by his playing. And I never ever heard him sing(!)
From what I recall (and I don't know where I heard it), at that time Don was a student of someone called John Williams who was a Student of a Julian Breame and was then a sort of student of some Sergovia guy.
Don must have been the same age or a tad older than me, at 16.
His guitar playing always impressed me.
