Hi, I've been playing guitar for around 20 years (whew!). I too was distressed at his passing last year. I was doing some surfing because I was bored and I decided to visit the Shawn Lane site (hadn't been in a while) I was shocked to find out he died. I was really disgusted that he was already gone for a month by the time I found out. The true geniuses never get their just due.I am totally sickened by the so- called music scene in this country. The great musicians just never get recognized. There always was a niche for them in the past.It's this mentality and the lack of respect and recognition for guitar playing lately that led me to quit my two bands a month ago. I was ready to quit guitar altogether. Now tonight I was surfing again and decided to see what was going on with the site...WOW it changed. But after listening to a few clips of Shawn, I feel inspired. Well anyway, I ramble on...I just registered. Hope to do some posting soon!!

Hi. I am a 32 year old guitar player from Norway.I just want to say that I think Shawn Lane was a true genius and will be deeply missed. He opened up doors for me musically when I discovered him 5 years ago. What I admired most was his emotional phrasing, and his personal appearance. I only knew him through his instructional videos, but he seemed like a really nice guy. Thanks Shawn, for your influence. I also would like to send my best wishes to his family.

I have only recently become exposed to Shawn's great talent, and want to pay my respects to his folks. From what I've seen and read, he was an awfully nice person, and I send the best to his people. He will always be remembered on FUSENET. peace ddd

Hello, I just came across some of Shawns and Jonass (hm, do I have to use 2 s here?) works. I think their music was really unique and beautiful - in composition and creativity. It makes me sad that I'll never be able to experience them playing together live... at least not here on earth. Ah, and before I forget, very nice website, keep up the good work! May god bless all of you, Micha

Dear friends, I only just got the news of the death of brother musician and friend, Shawn Lane. I'll never forget spending time with him after he opened for Robin Ford. I missed the entire Ford set talking with Shawn. I was travelling a lot last Sept/Oct and it passed me by, but now....the loss is no less painful. We'll keep your tunes spinning brother Shawn. Love you lots.

Part 2 of my post... Jason and I are very good friends and he has shared with me almost from the begining what he does on guitar which means there's some Shawn in what I do-and I thank Shawn for influencing Jason for influencing me.. When Shawn passed on Jason called me -he was so devastated... Jason-Winters Falling-I feel darkness and sorrow, but I also feel as much thank you Shawn and we'll jam in the cosmos when I am there too!! Most well done Bro. Just sharing.. Kevin Doris-keyboards

I had the pleasure of meeting Shawn back in 1982 in Albuquerque when the band I was in was opening up some concerts for Jim Dandy and Savage. I was knocked over by Shawn-he was just 17 years old at the time. His playing was so far beyond any guitarists I had heard-local or pro. Savage was awesome-a very hot fusion quartet that was unfortunately lost on the crowd-we were playing at a large bar. After the concert our band had ppl come up and telling us we were better than Jim and Savage-we answered, "Thanks, but you are wrong." Just another tribute to the tin ear of the masses... About 2 years ago I looked up Shawn online and was super impressed at what he had accomplished. I wasn't surprized-he had an incredible gift that was apparent to me from those concerts back in '82. A little over a year ago I met another mega talent on guitar-Jason Macedo. The first time we met we were talking about the influences on our playing and I asked if he ever heard of Shawn Lane. "Shawn Lane!! OMG!!! He is why I learned to play!!! He is it!!!!" Jason went on for quite some time talking about Shawn and how incredible he was. Out of all the names he talked about as far as influences Shawn was #1..
