    Steve Duritt at Lou Mercuri Music in Burlington sduritt@comcast.net

    Do a search on "Mercuri", folks here have used his excellent services. Not hard to get to from 195, the Turnkpike and 295. Well worth the drive.

    It is with profound sadness that I have to announce the untimely passing, on June 30, 2009, of Steve Duritt: bassist, luthier, and a dear, dear friend.

    One of the absolute nicest people I've ever met, Steve was longtime bassist for both the Mojo Gypsies and The Rippers, and his sudden passing, at the way-too-young age of 50, has stunned us all.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
    Regards, Dave Orban

    OMG!
    That's quite a shock. He just did some work on my LPC & 335.
    He was very helpful, informative, an patient with all my questions and pestering.

    It certainly is a wake up call, no one is guaranteed a tomorrow. He was telling me how all the 'day gig' & side guitar work was getting to be a bit much.
    Prayers for his family & friends. He will be mised.

    Sorry to hear the news, Dave. Not only was he great guitar guy and musician, he was a hell of a guy too.

    I use Bill Baker at Dave's Sound Repair in Whippany, and have been really happy with his work. Super mellow dude, great to deal with.
