I have had no luck trying to get in touch with Brian for some time up to finding this obit. I have missed talking to him for a while as all my contact infor wasn't working. Now I really wished I had stopped to see him somewhere along the way. I am proud to say he was a great friend of mine for years and I am so sorry to find this. He was my guitar guru and I think of him everytime I look at a Cadillac. I miss you my old friend.

Brian and I were standing in front of the old Garden Theater watching the Heritage Days Parade, around 20 years ago. He looked past me and said "Now who is this clown?"
I looked down the street and walking toward us was a clown tossing candy to the kids along the route.
I sure do miss his sense of humor.
