WE SALUTE YOU, RICK

Rick StoneThe jazz guitar community is a relatively small one, and it always hurts to lose one of the great players too soon. Rick Stone passed away after a difficult but very brave battle, leaving a grieving family and wide circle of musical friends. Our President Howard Paul last spent time with him at the International Wes Montgomery Jazz Guitar Awards in NYC, where they enjoyed the next generation of fine guitarists, and talked about their mutual love of all things jazz guitar. From all of us at Benedetto Guitars, we salute Rick’s talent and dedication, will continue to enjoy his recording and video legacy, and extend our profound sorrow to his family and close friends in the NYC guitar community.
