Hello Everyone,

I just received very sad news, that Johnny Best one of the real GREATS, and
a true friend of mine passed this morning. John had a long career and I'm
sure there will be a proper write up on him. I know he played with Glenn
Miller, Artie Shaw, Bob Crosby and the Bob Cats, Yank Lawson, Bob Haggart,
Eddie Miller, L.A. Studios, and  recorded on many records... Too Many for me
to list..
