    Seems like we're losing all the good musicians lately!

    I loved his playing but could see his body wouldn't take it much longer.

    Where did you read it?

    Yes, it's true. Apparently he had some sort of dehabiltating lung disease. Don't know the details.

    I saw him a couple of times with Jonas Helborg and Jeff Sipe. They were amazing.

    RIP, Shawn.

    Wow, that is a shame to hear. While I didn't know much of the man, I was certainly aware of the musician. I really enjoyed his work. Though he never made it into the mainstream, it is a real loss from the musical landscape.

    I love guitar sweeping, and in this technique Shawn Lane was one of the two guitarists who most impressed me. The other one is John Petrucci, of Dream Theater.

    His playing on MVP's Centrifugal Funk (Jimmy Earl on bass) was great. Powers of Ten was a terrific album too.
