As Guy Van Duser says, "We miss you, Chet." and Happy Birthday to one of the most influential guitarists ever!!

Yes, a year from today would have been his 90th. In 10 days it will have been 12 years since we lost him. I'm just glad that his memory has been kept alive all this time.

"We will never see the like of his talent in one man. When you talked about who was the greatest guitar player, Chet's name was never mentioned, because you just took him and put him up there, and then you argued about the rest of them." __Eddy Arnold

That's what I saved it from. It just summed it up so neatly... I post it often because it is so eloquent...
