"A genuine giant of the bass guitar, with all the contrapuntal melodicism of James Jamerson. I turned on to the Butterfly when I was a kid and have stuck with them ever since (and that's a LONG time at this point). If any of Lee's family members happen to read this, I offer my sincere condolences."

"Bumming... Just heard. Gonna rib Charlie and Ron for not letting me know. Doug, if ya can read me... Thanks, can't help but think you helped make me who I am. Best to you as you find what ever is next. The world has surely lost one of the best. So glad I've had the pleasure to know you. Mike in CT."

"My first real rock concert was Iron Butterfly at Agg Hall at the Allentown Fairgrounds, 4/25/69. I was mesmorized and will NEVER forget it. Lee was an integral part of a band that has influenced me to this day. Thanks big guy."
