    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.
  2. Damn,... that is bad news. :(

    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.
