While in Flagstaff last week I saw that Hollis had passed. Hollis was a fireman in El Paso and a good friend of Ray Jenkins. He was one of the first folks I met when the Southwest Steel Guitar Assoc. formed. He was quite a great guy and lived in Flagstaff before moving on to Saint George Utah. Spent some time jamming in his garage with Hollis, Ray Jenkins and Fred Justice on a great Flagstaff summer day some time back.

Thank you Fred for posting this. God rest his soul.
Hollis was a good man, a kind man as well, always a smile on his face.
I can just see him playing that old Emmons in Ray's carport jam.
Rest in peace Hollis.

Sad to hear of this.
I first met Hollis at the very beginning of the SWSGA.
He always had a smile & would take time to always say Hello to me.
He will be missed.
RIP Hollis.

We need to turn the TWANG up a little

It's not what you play through, it's what you play through it.

They say that tone is all in the fingers...I say it is all in your head Smile

Some of the best pieces of life are the little pieces all added up..Ron

the value of friendship. Old friends shine like diamonds, you can always call them and - most important - you can't buy them.
