"I was introduced to JJW back in the 80's by my good friend Dave, we traveled from nearby Delhi to hear him a few times in Oneonta and NYC. Never will forget his show at Damaschke field in the 90's or at the Oneonta Theatre several years later. I always hoped to attend one of his Birthday Bash's but never made it, but I consider myself fortunate that I was able to attend several of his shows. RIP JJW and keep on playing."
"I Met him in a.....actually at the Yellow Door Coffee house in Montreal - 1968...He already had a 3 or 4 page printed list of all the places he had played. Saw Jerry Jeff as often as I could....even after moving to Calgary, caught him there a few times - then moved further west and saw him play the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
The world is short one bright shining star......a one of a kind talent.
Sincere condolences to Susan, Django, and Jessie......"
"I had the honor of serving as Jerry Jeff's touring sound company for many years during the mid-70s. My crew and I listened in awe many nights from just off-stage to the collective musical genius Jerry Jeff and the multi-talented Lost Gonzo Band exhibited. Long ago I lost connection with the Austin music scene. With great sadness just yesterday I learned of Jerry Jeff's death. To Susan and family, we share your loss...your pain. Jerry Jeff was an icon to the musical world and a loving friend to those who knew him well. He will be greatly missed."
