Oh my, this is shocking news for sure. Cord was such a gentlemen and great player, not mention a pillar in the
Illinois steel guitar community. Prayers and sympathies to his family.

I just got off the phone with Dan Burnham of BMI Guitars. Dan gave me this sad news. I met Cord years ago at the Illinois show along with Dave and Dow. You will have a hard time finding a better group of men. Rest In Peace my friend.

Cord Fitch was a force in the steel guitar community - a great player and organizer of the SIP steel show. Thank you for the music and rest in peace, sir.
