May God be with the family, friends, and fans as you grieve your loss. Jesus died that we may have everlasting life

I would like to express my deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one, who will be remembered for his contribution to the music industry. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of sorrow.

Fuzz Because of G.S.!!!

Davie Allan & The Arrows utilized his invention in the mid sixties and still employ it to sublime bliss to this very day! Fuzz is the greatest guitar effect ever! That Snoddy sound is the greatest distortion. I have enjoyed it since he invented it.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family at this difficult time. Please find peace in knowing that God understands your grief and that he cares. 1 Peter 5:6&7 assures us "Humble yourselves, therefore , under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt by. you in due time, while you big all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you."

Condolences on the loss of your loved one. May you be comforted by the God of comfort who comforts us in our times of sorrow and pain.
