Jerry Lynn Williams – the Best

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 11, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Re: Jerry Lynn Williams article ["The Lone Ranger," Music, Jan. 27]: This was an excellent article about a guy who deserves a book of his own. Jerry Lynn Williams was a genius. He was the epitome of funkiness. I have owned his Spindizzy LP for years and still blow the minds of great musicians by playing it. I used to own Gone, but someone stole it. And I've just ordered Peacemaker. I would love to have a CD copy of Gone and the cassette mentioned in the article. There will never be anyone as good as Jerry Lynn Williams again. I'm a 55-year-old guy, and I cried when I heard he had died. Thanks Jerry, wherever you are. You were the very best.
