Re: “Support Local Music

I'm in one of those guitar center butt-rock bands, and I still appreciate you actually taking the time to talk to me and write about the show. You didn't have to do that, and yet you did. Best of luck on your new endeavours! Memphis is going to miss having guys like you that actually care about the local scene!

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

Thought of Jerry tonight and looked this up again to see if the pos that did this was ever caught. I can't seem to find anything about an arrest. I hope they find whoever did this.

Re: “Memphis Blues Musician Fred Sanders Passes Away at 71

I loved my uncle Fred his brother Pastor James P. Sanders although some just know him as JP took me to meet his brother and family in Memphis when I was little in the 70's I loved all who I meet as a child we did not make it to Memphis all the time but he was love by all of the Sanders children his which are his nephews and nieces.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

We were at River Records just in July. When my husband and i started dating back in 1998 he took me to see Jerry Gibson and River Records. Well, needless to say we made it a event about twice a year. Truly a wonderful person and We loved Jerry. Got a picture with all visits. He will be missed. He had hoped to move to Ark. and retire. I ask Jerry was he scared here and of course Jerry said No. And a lot i cant repeat. LOL... Rest in Vinyl Heaven.

I also hadn't expect a Country Rockers reissue. Surprises can be nice.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

My dad was neighbors with Jerry Gibson for over twenty years a long long time ago, they were close growing up even picked cotton together. They would see each other every year at fish fry's. He thought the world of him, he said he was a really good guy.

Re: “Rest in Peace Jerry Gibson of River Records

Some of them actually consciously target people whom others respect, the good people, in order to tear the community down. They get off on being the bad one.

Re: “Rest in Peace Jerry Gibson of River Records

Self centered evil people have no idea, or don't care how much they hurt others. Not just the victims, but all those that cared about the victims.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

He was certainly a treasure of information and LOVED what he did. It was great watching him engage people that had never been there before. He helped me get so many of the records that I treasure most and seemed to take real pleasure in doing that for folks.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

No funeral will be held but look for a memorial to be held in the record shop sometime in January. Thank you all for the heartfelt words about Jerry Gibson. He will truly be missed.
