Oh man, what to say about B.D. He was absolutely one of the greatest people I have ever known. From just sitting around talking to picking and recording, I will always treasure the time we spent together. Spent many hours on the golf course with B. D., many more picking at the store and in the studio. I will miss him and his great stories and friendship. He loved Steph more than anything and was proud of all his kids and grandkids.
