Two Johns Gone

Today is the day to commemorate the passing of two outstanding musicians. If you are not familiar with them please take a moment to look at their pictures and have a listen.
Papa John Creach
May 8, 1917 - February 22, 1994

Papa John remains one of my most favorite photography subjects. He allowed me to hang out in his dressing room and take candid shots. I thank him for giving me some of my best work.

John Fahey
February 28, 1939 - February 22, 2001

John Fahey was a cantankerous guy, who was quite possibly the best accoustic guitarist I've seen. I can't say John gave me my best pictures but I can definitely say he gave me one of my best rock'n'roll stories. Seriously.
