Gary Richrath

REO Speedwagon guitarist Gary Richrath died a few days ago with very little news coverage. It makes me sick to my stomach that the people of this country, or world for that matter care more about the Kardashians than they do about a key musician like Gary. I just want to say Thank you Gary. You were the guy who got me into electric guitar, and subsequently amplifiers. You're a legend.
