June 26, 2018 "I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Murphy here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada while playing at the King Eddie Hotel. As the band took a break I was standing outside with him and talking. He found out I was a mechanic and asked me to look at his Cadillac because it was not running good. Sure I said. He picked me up next morning drove back to the hotel and he flipped his keys and said bring it back when it is done. My friend and fixed his car and he was very happy. All 3 of us hung out for the day. I was so saddened to hear of his passing. My deepest condolences to his family. I have lost a nice friend and acquaintance. God Bless you Guitar. Have a safe journey." - Ken Tebin (Calgary, AB)
