• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Heard 2nd hand that one of our members reported passed away - Dan Duntze (bluesforstevie)? Any confirmation of this?

Read it on a Facebook page of one of his friends. Does anyone have any information on Dan's passing? I know he lived in St. Louis MO. Talented blues guy. Sorry to hear this news.

I looked for an obit but doesn't seem to be one out there. He had shown back up on the forum a while back, hadn't he?

Damn. He was one of the guys who I enjoyed reading very much when I joined the forum back than. I noticed he was on a longer forum hiatus, but he recently was back posting and was very enthusiastic about he newly aquired LP Special. I thought he was well. Very sad to hear about his passing.

We were friends here and on FB. His FB page has condolences and RIPs on it so apparently he’s gone. No mention of the circumstances....

RIP Dan. We will miss you!

Very sorry to hear, Dan was a great player and very schooled on old school blues tone. I remember the videos of him playing his conversion through a 60ies BFDR, what an awsome sound he had!

BFS was a fixture here for years. He had a rough spell. I sincerely hope he has finally found peace.

When I mentioned that I knew Dan from the Forum one of his Facebook friends indicated that according to Dan’s sister Dan suffered a massive heart failure.

Stay healthy everyone!
