Sweden’s own Mr Steel, Janne Lindgren, has passed away at the age of 69. He has been a tremendous help for a lot of us who started out on the steel guitar without a clue. A stop by his workshop/store/studio was always graced by his generosity and hospitality, a place so full of memorabilia, gear and knowledge of the steel guitar. I’ve been there several times with my Sho-Bud and he showed me how I could fix it myself. Never late to share his skills and pass the knowledge on to the next generation. Rest in peace Janne, and let the music play wherever you are.
Music is love!
