Remembering Jerry Lynn Williams

RECEIVED Tue., March 21, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I just read your article about Jerry Lynn Williams [“The Lone Ranger,” Music, Jan. 27]. What a sad time this is for all of us. I knew him very well. Jerry lived on a farm south of Crowley, Texas. I was a drummer, and I would get a bass player, and we would go out to his farm and just play for hours and hours. The only thing we bothered were the cows on his place. I had a great time. I have got numerous hours of our jam sessions on reel to reel tape. I have got to find a reel to reel player and transfer the music we recorded onto CDs. Anyway, I thank you for the great write-up about Jerry. I played drums for Johnny Nitzinger for a few years. I am not sure if you know who he is. Thank you for this article and good luck to you.
