Today i'm a sad man. Why? Because I read in this forum about the death of Stan Kilarr in 1995 an the terrible destruction of his house and all his record collection. How can people be so ingnorent, or greedy for money for the ground his house was on. I'm appoled and sad.
I met Stanley by mail in 1965 when I was a young fellow, over the years we exchanged letters and records. I obtained his 4 LP records with restored "Hillbilly" music, or in Stan's words Truly an Americana. Naturally I still have these LP's in my collection.
In 1980 I traveled from The Netherlands to Klamath Falls Ore. First to visit some American relatives of mine who owned an auto shop out there.
This is when I met Stan in person in his crooked old wooden house full of records. Even a reporter of the local newspaper was called in for a photo sesion and an article on Stan and my good self.
I had a truly memorable time with Stan for a couple of days learning about old-time Country and Western music.
Now-a-day's I'm 63 years of age with my own collection of 75 speed records. My house is not that full of records as Stanley's was but one room is fully dedicated to my record collection.
It amazes me there is so little to be found on Stanley on the Internet apart from the occasional advertisement on E.bay for one of his LP's and the story of him filming behind the scenes of
The Misfits.
Anyway, sad, sad indeed.
Greetings from The Netherlands,
