Duane Jarvis RIP

Oh Boy Records is sad to announce that longtime friend, collaborator and world class musician Duane Jarvis passed away yesterday in his Los Angeles home after a 16 month bout with colon cancer. He was 51.

Jarvis played guitar and bass on a number of recordings for John Prine as well as on the road with him for some time. He had, as Rosie Flores once said, a "Keith Richards flair and a honky-tonk heart". His spirit and creativity will certainly be missed.
