    One of my Nashville Bass Hang Friends on Facebook has reported that Chuck and Susan Rainey have lost everything in a house fire. This is a terrible blow to Chuck and family, coming on top of his stroke earlier this year. I did go to Susan Rainey's Facebook Page and there are directions of how to help. Just wanted to pass this on to fellow Talkbassers.

    Getting passed along on FB now. Just glad they're OK. Thanks, Roy, a few of us live close to him in the same area and we didn't know.

    He gave me a lesson one time. Super cool human being. I'd be interested in PayPal account information once it has been set up. Sub'd.

    Terrible news. It is sad to see that such a wonderful person has had such a horrible year. I will dig to find out how I can help.

    Oh man, when it rains it pours. I keep a watch out for the PP information to send some help along to an amazing and deserving guy.

    I have to tell you - a fire is my biggest fear in my house. It has survived numerous earthquakes here in L.A, so all that is really left to worry about is a fire (or maybe a meteorite). I do have fire sensors as part of my home security system and I am only a few blocks from the Fire Station, but it is still a very real concern.
