I received a letter from chet after meeting Earl Klugh at pontiac music & sound.
Chet invited me to madison wisconsin, May 4, 1991.
It was and honor to finally meet him in person.
We talked and joked about the nashville sound.

I do remember him from years ago. Yes he drank too much but he was a nice guy when he was not drinking. He never hurt any of my children and they loved him until he got that smelly beer breath then they stayed away from him. ( Funny ) His wife was real nice and we'd hope that turned him around but as we all know she passed away and Tim didn't do so well. Been 3 years and sorry for the family and friends.
