    I was saddnend recently to hear of the passing of a fellow bass player locally... I have only met Jerry Noyes a few times at Seymour gigs here in Portland, but for 13 years he was the bass player, rhythm section mate and treasured friend to someone who is like a brother to me... Seymour isn't a band that achieved any degree of fame, more likely than not you've never heard of them... just a bunch of guys playing for the love of playing.

    Through my friend Jim and the stories that he told of Jerry, I felt that I knew him a little bit... His playing philosophy was to serve the song, sit back, groove, (okay, maybe a little tense now and again), and enjoy the time spent onstage with his friends. He did this more often than not when he strapped on a bass and locked in with Jim...

    I know that this Thursday at least, when I get together with my mates for our weekly jam, sappy as it sounds, I'm gonna let 'em know how much they mean to me, how much I enjoy our times together, and I'm gonna lay at least one squarely in the pocket in memory of Weej...
