  • R.I.P., Bluesman

    Two nights ago we lost Bluesman, AKA Dave Davis.

    Very sad. I really thought he was going to beat his condition, like all of the other times.

    I am very sorry to hear this. I had a number of friendly interactions with Blues over the years, starting almost from the beginning when I joined in 2007. He was the Administrator at that time. I remember that he emailed me to poke a bit of fun at the name I had chosen. I responded that in real life I was more of a Cyrus The Plebeian and that I just had a lot of respect for the historical Cyrus; a man truly worthy of Immortality.

    My condolences to Blues' family.

      Like Andrew, I thought he was going to beat the odds again too. Nothing but respect for Bluesman. He was one of a kind.

        Me, too. I really hoped to chat with him again. We talked guitars a few times, as he knew so much!

          Thank you for posting this Andrew. I haven't been here for quite a while, so don't know what prompted me to check in today. Very sorry to hear the news. He was very helpful to me years ago when the board was experiencing problems with deleted/hacked accounts, and despite some of the nastiness that occurred here during those times, I always felt like he was a good guy. He went through so much, so may he truly rest in peace now.
          WHAT IF THERE WERE NO HYPOTHETICAL QUESTIONS?

            I miss him.

                  I've only just returned to the forums after so many years. I can't believe Blues is gone. Awful news. RIP.

                    I only knew him a little. I sent him tea from Japan once, and we talked guitars. I'm a complete amateur, he was very kind to me.

                      We didn’t really get along, but it’s sad our small Highlander community just got smaller. RIP Bluesman, I wonder if he’s sharing drinks in Le Blue’s Bar with Eric and the others we lost over the years.

                        Slightly morbid, but is there a list of who we have actually lost over the years? I know a lot of members haven't come back to the new iteration of this board for one reason or another, but I don't know how many can't come back.

                          Past administrators might know who we have lost over the years. You might try asking Andrew NDB.
