I can't claim to have known Tony very well, but I remember that his posts were always cheerful, especially when he'd found a new fiesta red Strat model released! I hope he's got room for all his guitars up there.

R.I.P. Tony, my prayers are with you,

I never met Russet, being so far away, and know him only through this forum. I was saddened by the news. My sincerest condolences to you, John. You must feel his loss very deeply.
