He was very much the musician’s musician, which can be seen from all the tributes at have been made to him. Here are some:
Tom was a tender southern gent in life, a poet and a music master on stage. He had a rocking chair wisdom that brought everything back down to earth. We will love and miss him for the rest of our days.
Our thoughts are with his family and all the Heartbreakers.
