Not sure what to say?

I met John in 1965 at SIU when he was playing with Gary, Jon, Jerry & Peter in the Nite Owls. I still have a copy of the record they cut. We were good friends back then and I continued to catch up with John when he moved to Chicago. He was a wonderful musician and a good friend. Along with very good memories he will be thought of often and fondly.

Jerry Meyer,
I spent the last forty years with your presence always there. Not quite sure what to do now. It's like losing your arm and your dog at the same time - but worse. Your music will and does live on. "there ain't no piano like it, anywhere I've found. . . And that's the truth. I'm sure going to miss you JJ. Amen.

Eva, so sorry to hear about this. John was a dear friend for many years and he will be sorely missed.

I knew John when he was in the band Nighthawk. what a wonderful sweet man. Watching him play always made me smile.

Very sorry to learn of John's passing from Terry Ogolini (Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows, Chicago R and B Kings); in Chicago the radio is playing Aliotta, Jeremiah and Haynes' 'Lake Shore Drive' repeatedly. Peace, brother.
