He died almost three weeks ago....how in the world could this have gone unnoticed? No justice....I read where they had to raise enough money to cremate him. Rest in peace sir....tell Chet we all said hello.

He could really rip a gtr in that Travis/chet/Reed style...What a sad loss for his friends and family.. I might be totally off on this, but wasn"t Buster actually Brad Jones?I seem to dimly recall he won a GP mag player award one year, back in the "80"s. He played a fingerstyle blues and his winning entry appeared on a "soundpage" along w/ 2 other entries. I seem to be remembering that the actual issue was the one w/ Gatton on the cover. I remember being blown away at the great playing on that Brad Jones/Buster Jones entry.

Yeah....that"s the guy, Richard. He was featured on that flexidisc because he won a Guitar Player "Unknown Talent" competition. Amazing tune......"Backporch Boogie".......I think he recorded it into a boombox. That version is available on one of his early releases, of the same name.Really sad to hear he passed. GREAT player.
RIP Buster. I got a chance to see him at a guitar clinic about 4 years ago. Such a great fingerstyle and travis picking player and defintely a great sense of humour. What a shame.

This is devastating. After Brad won the Guitar Player contest, my college roomate and I found out he taught at Fret Mill Music in Roanoke, VA. We were attending VA Tech at the time, and we drove about 45 minutes each way for the lessons. He taught us both together for an hour. I still have all the handwritten exercises he gave us. He took a liking to us and invited us over to a Christmas Party he was having at his trailer with some guitar buddies. Among the attendees was his brother (whose name escapes me just now) who just KILLED! He played rings around everyone, including Brad. Man, those lessons and experiences with Brad were fantastic. Once, after we had stopped taking lessons, we were browsing in the strore when he came down from upstairs and said, "let me show you a tune I"ve been working on called "Wild Turkey."" He then proceeded to take a 12 string off the wall and decapitate us. My God, that sound! He will be missed. RIP, Brad.
