    Very saddened to hear the news of Neal's apparent suicide- 50 years old the same as me..... a great innovative guitar player who I've talked with a few times- always humble and gracious with his time- a good guy. Best known as Ryan Adam's guitar player - also Chris Robinson's guitar player + I really liked Circles Around the Sun as well- he was also an amazing solo artist. Very sad!

    Great player....mostly familiar with him from the Cardinals, but he's definitely left a big footprint.

    I didn't know who this was until I read the post and realized I watched a rig rundown with him a while ago.

    You never know what's going on inside someone's head.

    suicide is always sad. Despair is a call for help not a call for the swan song.

    Anyone ever felling in despair needs to muster what they can and get up and help their brother across the tracks. Giving of one’s self is a great antidote.


    Rant over.

    Condolences to his family.
