I was very sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. He was a lot of fun, a great musician, and he cared deeply about others who were in need of support. He will be greatly missed.

I always marveled at your musical talents and will always value having the honor to know you over the decades.  I hope you've found permanent solace.

RIP my friend,

I had more fun playing with / learning guitar and equipment from this guy than any other guitarist I ever played with. (And I've played with some GREAT guitarists.) He was the BEST copy player in technique and tone I've ever heard in person. No matter the material, you'd swear that guitar player was standing right in front of you when Kenny was playing those parts. I know he had his issues but I genuinely liked this guy and that's saying something because I'm not what you'd call a "people person".
