Thought the slide players might want to know that Don Helms, steel player for Hank Williams, passed away this morning.
1927-2008

That's too bad. He was a terrific player. At least he lived a good lifespan, unlike Hank.

Guess now there's only Herb Remington left of that generation of western swing/jazz steel pioneers, like Helms, Joaquin Murphy, Bob Dunn, Speedy West.....
