The passing of a Fan
Posted by: SKILLS ()
Date: September 11, 2018 08:27

Today i learnt that my dear friend and companion on many a musical journey Michael Williams a.k.a. The Bowl, a.k.a. Super Bowl, a.k.a. Fruit Bowl has passed away.

59 way too soon.

Bowl played a Fender Precision Bass 1978 Sunburst through a 1978 Fender Studio Bass Amplifier atop a Bassman Cabinet.

And he rocked

No more hearing him tell me that he should have got the gig in 1994

He loved watching Hampton 81 with me, used to borrow my DVD's all the time to watch because the TV changed signals and he couldn't watch TV anymore so it was Concerts and Action movies that sustained him.

He loved listening to and making music.

Goodbye My Friend, I'll see you again and we can play for eternity, maybe even convince Jack Bruce to pop in for a master class

Love Mark

So sorry about the loss of your friend, so hard to lose someone we connect with over music. At least now he's part of a mindblowing jam session going on somewhere up there.

You obviously inspired each other mutually; and you shared some good, gréat times - and that's a true 'legacy' in my book.

Losing your friends sucks. Lost one to a 4+ year battle with lung cancer (nonsmoker) two months ago.

Sorry for your loss.
But this is unfortunately not the first - and last fan to go.
It's quite an old fan-base. Lost a few.

I had the privilege of joining this community just over Ten years ago. When i suffered a injury that kept at home for nearly a year and i looked for something to while away the hours.

I found IORR.org and the listings, discussions, trades, reflections and love of this music and also I found UrbanSteel who indulged my unknowing requests of how to access these download sites to get some Video content, I had always wanted to see Hampton since i read about it in a book, Urban helped.

Now today some ten years later, this community helps again.

Your messages of support, I have shared them with friends of Michael's and they are touched by the comfort of, to them strangers, to me my friends.

Thank you all.

Mark

Yeah I'm starting to think the Stones have made a secret "longevity" pact with the Devil and they'll bury all their fans one by one.
(okay maybe not the teens who saw them for the 1st time this year). grinning smiley

That's genuinely scary.
