John Lopez R.I.P.

PCS Nitrogen Silver Stars Steel Orchestra is mourning the sudden passing on Friday November 29, 2013 of stalwart John Lopez.  Up to a few hours before we received the news, John was practising happily in the pan yard for Parang & Steel which begins tonight at 8.00pm.  A special tribute to John will be posted on When Steel Talks later today.

WST Members,

I received sad news about the sudden passing of Edgar "Junior" Pouchet last night or sometime early this morning, at his home in Orlando, Florida.  

Junior, as we all know, was the founder of Silver Stars Steel Orchestra.  Fitting tributes are due to this steelband pioneer.
