    Buddy Emmons some years back when he was visiting friends in Central Florida. He dropped in at the now defunct Florida Sunshine Opry to visit with Brian Goodpaster , who doubled on steel (fairly good at the time, now much better) and fiddle (better than excellent). Buddy sat in with the band that night and hung around afterwards to chat with anyone who wanted to speak with him. He had a lot of good stories and offered technical help on the steel to a few who asked him questions of that nature.

    Buddy struck me as a fine gentleman and he was an outstanding musician

    He was also diverse, as he did some work out here in the burgeoning Los Angeles country-rock scene of the late 60s and early 70s, including on Linda Ronstadt’s self-titled 1972 album and her 1973 album DON’T CRY NOW. It is also Buddy’s steel guitar work that’s on Rick Nelson’s 1969 comeback hit “She Belongs To Me”. A fine talent who will definitely be missed, but also remembered.
