I'm listening more and more. I'm also searching youtube and other sites to see more. If anyone has more material from Shawn's impressive catalogue, please make it available for the general public. Coincidence with the last name?
I get goosebums everytime i listen to Shawn`s music!! Especially Epilogue For Lisa! Where can i find backing track for this solo?? Rest in peace!
I love Shawn's music so much I can't describe it, but discovering him was similar to discovering Jimi Hendrix, Alan Holdsworth, Jaco Pastorius and John Coltrane-life changing. I met 2 good guitarists who were both into some very good musicians in the past 2 days. Neither one had heard of Shawn, so I sat them down and had them watch the 11 minute version of "Aga of the Ladies" currently on youtube. Now 2 more lives have been improved, and I feel like I did something worthwhile. Nobody who is sensitive to musical greatness can be the same after hearing Shawn. The inspiration I get from him is huge, and the loving words of his family and friends make me wish I had the honor of knowing him. He was one of a kind, and I will never stop listening and being grateful for his giant gift to the world. Thank you to Shawn for his greatness, and thank you to his family for giving all of us fans a chance to express how much he means to us.
Shawn played my bachelor party in 93 w/ the Willys. He was a super kind and generous soul. I sat in with he and the band and had an absolute ball. My friend Anthony Johns has video of the entire night's performance, at this point still on vhs. We will try to make it available to the estate asap. God bless you, and God rest Shawn's sparkling soul.
Thanks for this page; Shawn's music will always be alive. Is music worthy of honor
Season's greeting! Wishing you and yours have wonderful coming new year. Thank you very much for running this site. It means alot for true music lovers like us. Shawn is always in my heart. Sometimes when I get to talk and see new people getting into Shawn's music in Japan, it brings lot of warmth and joy to me. Lets keep his music stay alive together. Regards. choco from Japan.
Shawn is one of those musician's who really make you look at music in a different light, demonstrating things you may not even have imagined and moving you to the point of tears. From what i can gather he was a complete genius and more importantly a great and much loved man. It kills me to learn of his suffering and confirms in my mind that the good are really taken young. i wish i could have met him to say in person how thankful i am to have such an inspiration. RIP Shawn, the greatest guitarist. 😎

Shawn you left us way to soon. Your loveones you left behind are selfish and wanted you here with us on earth. God needed you for a reason that we don't know. We do know that you are looking down on us smiling and signing with the angels. You have left a void in our hearts that can never be replaced. But we know one day we will meet again. I know you will welcome us with open arms and give us a teddy bear hug. Until that day you and your musid will live in our hearts. I LOVE YOU SHAWN.
