James Gurley, the groundbreaking guitarist for Big Brother and the Holding Company has passed away at 69. He was a forerunner of the 60's San Francisco psychedelic sound, leading the way for Jerry, Jorma, John Cipolina, Barry "The Fish" Melton, and others of the era.

May the four winds blow you safely home.

Bill, tgo

It is so sad to see him go . His solos on "CHEAP THRILLS" still thrill me ! I grew up with that local" San Francisco Psychedelic Sound" . I send my love and respect.
