I cannot believe that Shawn is gone. I have been listening to his music since I was fourteen years old, and I am now twenty eight. I used to sneed into clubs to hear him play with the Willy's in Memphis. I remember with Powers of Ten first came out and he played a little show in a bar on Park Avenue, like the Red House or something. I have never seen anything like it. To hear him play All Along the Watchtower or Hotel California live was truly amazing. Rest In Peace Shawn.
I was recently introduced to Shawn Lane's music by my guitar teacher, and i've just gotta say, Shawn was the fastest and most soulful guitarist ever. And probably the best musician ever to live.
hey, i just wanted to say that Shawn is the greatest musician that ever graced our sound systems. i am doing my best to make as many people aware of his music as possible. Together we will all keep Shawns music alive. May he rest in peace He will not be forgotten
so nice place here.
I was lucky enough to see Hellborg/Lane/Sipe play twice at the Wetlands, N.Y.C. The playing by all was simply amazing. I was standing right in front of Shawn and my ears could not believe what my eyes were seeing! The layers of sound he was putting down were simply amazing!! He is playing with the angels now!!
Shawn Lane is one of the musicians I admire the most, he will be remembered.
hi trevor... let me know if there is anything i can help you with on the site..... shawn rules
I just wanted to thank the family for ensuring that Shawn's spirit lives on, and to invite everyone to the official forum at www.tarsun.net
Hello Diane, and the rest of Shawn's family.... I wish you all the best with preserving Shawn's legacy. I won't forget him, and I'll do my best to make others aware of him too.
A master of all styles.... Shawn Lane played many styles of music, his appreciation for the many different styles made his music so enjoyable to many he listen to different music, his compositions as great as the late 18th century greats. Sadly not many people know him and his music will die with the few unless we can promote and introduce his music to the world... Shawn Lane, a true genius.
Hey Trevor, keep this up dude. Your uncle would be proud! And keep posting in the forum. We need young members to spread the word so we get new fans!
It's great to know that Shawn and his music never will be forgotten. I was lucky enough to see him play live last year, to state his music as an impact on my life is a big understatement. Play on Shawn! /Micke
keep on rocking Shawn, wherewer you are...
I a was fortunate enough to see Shawn play and still enjoy listening to his music. "powers of ten live" blows me away and of couse anything with jonas is exhiliarating to say the least. He was such a tremendous talent that he made the amazing look so effortless. Thanks for keeping this website alive for him and us.

To be the best, to never buy into trends, and not even care who knows is absolutely amazing! Props to Shawn Lane
Dear Shawn, thank you for your music&the way you played it.you were truly blessed in a very special way&it HURTS so much that you left us this early.I guess its just The Way It Has To Be take care bro...play on.. luv always...
Shawn was a beautiful soul. The gift he has left behind for us all is so special, so precious, so beautiful!! In my mind, he is the greatest musician of all times (The fact that he was the best guitarist that ever lived is secondary to that). No one can touch him. He is so far ahead of them all!! He was just too good for this world. He has taught us all to appreciate the goodness in everything and to be true to ourselves. To never compromise. I would never forget his music and I would never forget THE MAN. What a great guy!!!
Hi Mom and Trevor, Looks Good so far. Do Shawn Proud. I love you both. Happy Birthday Shawn!! I am thinking of you Now and Always!!
Hi, I am Shawn's mom Diane. I would really like to hear from you: his friends and fans. You can send me a public or private message or story or pictures. I will try to get back to each and every one of you. I miss Shawn so much; but the condolence letters from around the world helped me greatly to see how much he was loved by all. (Not just me). I am going to do all that I can to keep his memory and music alive. Now he plays with the masters. Sincerely, Diane
