Again, RIP
I have that book - He signed it for me - and in an anomaly for today - his phone number was printed right on the cover.

I was enamored with his knowledge - he was the first guy to enlightened me about matching my Vox AC30 EL84 tubes. I thought it was a bunch of hooey - but my guitar tech thought other wise. Matched tubes allowed us to save a bundle by not having to replace the set every 2 or 3 weeks like we were.

I never bought his other gear - except for the Brick preamp. It was okay - really worked on guitar amps with one of his Microphones - and did a great job with Shure microphones.

He certainly brought the fun into the mundane maintenance and repair side of the music business.

See Ya around Aspen!
