Just heard that the great steel guitarist, Tom Brumley, died in San Antonio after a heart attack. Tom was part of Buck Owens’ legendary Buckaroos during their heyday and played that amazing steel on all those wonderful hits and was one of the most influential amongst the steet guitar crowd.
The Brumleys were blessed with above-average talent all around. Tom’s Daddy was Alfred E. Brumley who was the Mack Daddy of Gospel music songwriting that wrote I’ll Fly Away, Turn Your Radio On, If We Never Meet Again, Rank Stranger, I’ll Meet You In The Morning and a ton of other gospel standards.
Tom even had his own MySpace page! Go there so you can hear more.
