Very sad news, Nech, thank you for letting us know.

For all of the long timers on here, it is with heavy heart that I pass on the 
news that long time FBO-er and DG-er, and all around funny guy, JR Sroufe, has 
gone over to play drums with Bonzo. Other than knowing he had been ailing for 
years, I was not aware just how dire his situation was. Apparently he was 
enjoying life to his fullest posting pics of his fishing prowess just up till 
this past weekend. 

I guess now I'll never find out just how the hell you got my number to work and 
then proceeded to call and berate me telling me you'd punch me so hard you'd 
knock a lung out cause your cell service was so bad. You totally had me. I bet 
there are others on here that can tell stories of JR's highjinks at Zepfests 

I shall also never forget you being one of the first people to burn me a bunch 
of shows to get my CDr collection going. And the choice of show was nothing 
short of classic. Smoking Pig's Burn Like a Candle. And him telling me "I'm 
doing it a 1X because it's THAT important of a show for you to have." A decade 
later Jimmy thought so too and gave us HTWWW. I still prefer Burn Like a 
Candle, and tonight shall go seek out that original cdr and have a Ballantine 
just for you.

RIP my friend. You will be missed.
