Title: Lost a friend a couple months ago...
Post by: JKennemur on September 11, 2015, 08:00:03 PM
Clark was a local musician. He played in a band called Soul Mechanic, kind of a progressive, funk, jam band. He had gone down to Birmingham, AL to see Aquarium Rescue Unit. Got to go back and chill with the band afterwards. Played Jimmy Herring's guitar. He spent the night with a friend down in Tuscaloosa and the house caught fire early in the morning. There were three people in the house and only one guy made it out. Clark and the other guy apparently never even woke up. Died of smoke inhalation. He was one of those guys where, if he was in the room, you were smiling, you had no choice! and he was always anxious to learn more guitar.

Anyway, I was checking out some of their YouTube videos and thought I'd share a couple. Clark's the guy in the middle with the beard and blue PRS.

Mr. Clark Jackson......

Pretty cool instrumentation with the violinist and percussion.
