    Got some really bad news yesterday, that my friend Joe Knapp had passed.

    An incredible guitarist who could play it all, he was in several bands in different genres around the southwestern Montana area, and had more recently was in Nashville and was in the process of going out on a major tour, he apparently was on the verge of breaking into the big-time, and everything was coming together for him.

    He was one of the first musicians I befriended after moving to Montana, and was a super nice guy.

    He was much younger than myself, had no bad vices I knew of, and we have no details of what the cause of death was..Truly a shame, and I'm pretty distraught over the news.

    RIP Joe, you were loved and will be missed.

    Sincere condolences. I know the hurt having lost a few over the last year. It sucks.

    I was aware of Joe Knapp over here in western Washington. He was a fine musician. Very sad.

    Sad to hear of your loss, brother.

    Life is already too short without us being cut off in the middle of things.
