    Just saw this elsewhere online.

    Jim Dunlop, Sr., founder of the Dunlop Manufacturing company, has died.

    Condolences to this family & friends.

    I've used a lot of different picks--and like to try new ones & sort of collect them, and many are Dunlops, and the main pick I keep coming back to (Tortex) is a Dunlop.

    I didn't know about the Canadian connection.

    I didn't know he had lived in Ottawa. I wonder if any of the old-timers in the music community here knew him.

    I like the Tortex picks as well.

    I've had several of his brands of picks over the years. R.I.P. Mr. Dunlop.
