Love to Julie and family. Had a great time catching up with Winston last year. We had some very amusing moments bartering for different musical items over the year. Be assured you have all been blessed to have been loved by such a wonderful human being. Vale Winston Foster. Currently in Thailand on holidays and was allerted to this sad news by friends everywhere.

I bought the guitar in the photo in 1980 from Winston Foster's music shop in Burnie.
Over the years I bought 6 guitars from Winston, two of which I still own, and I always go back to the shop when visiting Tassie. For me, there is always something special about visiting the man, and the place, I identify as the beginning of my music.
Alas, I read last night that I won't get to see Winston's cheeky smile again, or get to trade rejoinders over the merits, or lack thereof, of some new musical fad.
I was only ever a customer, but I never felt like a customer. Instead, I always felt as if I had been invited to share in a bit of Winston's world. For a kid with big ideas, a bit of desire, and no discernible talent, this was a powerful influence. I am reminded of those days sometimes when I play this guitar, and there will be a little sadness in the notes now.
Rest easy Winston. You were in a class above, and I am sad that you are no longer in the world.
