My bass teacher is dead

  1. I don't know if anyone here has heard of Gary Straiter, but he was the bassist of starcastle. He was my teacher for a few months. Kinda a downer. He died of pancreatic cancer

    Sorry to hear the bad news. He was a fine player, my sympathies to his friends and family.
  7. Sorry to hear it; my condolensces.

    The man in my sig was my classroom music teacher in '01 and '03 - it's almost as if teachers don't die, just retire or move somewhere else. :meh:
