Sorry to hear about Leo. His music will be remembered by a lot of people including myself. His son Rod stopped the Eagles Hall this last Saturaday and he played a guitar that Leo had made. It was great. His guitars will be around a long time and hie memory will be wish us. All the best to his family and take care. Hope to see you at the Eagles for the afternoon jam, Rod.
