I suspected that... or worse. Barry's absence has been noticed and I hope he is able to recover and return. He is a prolific Singer and Writer and has battled cancer for quite some time... and his wife was also quite ill.

Barry, we miss you and wish you the best.

Sorry to hear that. Barry is a good man and he has battled many obstacles, especially with his health over the past few years. Prayers and best wishes.

I'm sorry to hear this. Do you have a link to his facebook page? We lost two important JPFers in the past few days already, Jill Sansores Connolly who was a big part of our initial online efforts to recruit members (back when we used to do that) and also our early Roadtrip tours around the USA. And the same day I learned of the passing our Female Artist of the Year & Album of the Year winner Erika Luckett, one of the singular amazing talents I have ever come across in over 30 years of touring the world and meeting (and in most cases seeing perform) over 30K artists face to face. I hope Barry is comfortable and surrounded by people he loves and who love him. Thanks for letting us know Travis.

Bloody cancer.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Sorry to hear this about Barry. Many of us here are getting to the age when sickness will spring upon us. I have a dear friend waiting to go in the hospital now for a very serious operation, aneurysm behind his heart.

Damn, I wanted to say a lot about this, but I'll just go with [naughty word removed] cancer, the human condition and aging.

This kind of news makes me short with the young .....and I really shouldn't be.

Hi Mac:

I understand your angst... life really isn't fair but it's all we've got... and I'm going to try and make each day with all it's aches and pains... something to remember. Music really is an opiate... and... it's legal. Hoping Barry is comfortable or in a better place. His heart is bigger than Texas and I feel so badly for his situation. Thanks for "chiming-in"... I hope your music activities are headed up the charts for you.

Best, ----Dave
