I was lucky enough to work with Shawn w/BO back in the late 70's. He was a great kid, full of fun and he never seemed to want to stop playing.. I have often commented to other players that they were good but "no Shawn Lane"
I was fortunate enough to get to play with Shawn one night at the BelAir when he sat in with us. I was playing with Wayd Battle and Cowboy Eddie Long at the time. Very memorable. Vey vey talented guy.
I've recently found out about the sonic tsunami that is Shawn Lane on a guitar. My jaw drops everytime I hear him play. Enjoy Shawn's music and spread the word. 😉
Every time I think about Shawn's death I am saddened to know that there is another genius guitarist that was struck down in the prime of his life by something out of their control. I shall forever enjoy what Shawn left and the knowledge he imparted before he passed.
Shawn, You are and always will be an inspiration to many. May you RIP and God Bless your family. Wayne Keller
i think Shawn played with a family member of mine in 1987 Chuck Reynolds
i used to be tour coordinator for dregs and recently saw that andy west (bass) thinks so highly of shawn. i want to send a smile to his family for sharing him with us.
Just discovered his music last year..just beautiful. 🙂
😀 Shawn's sound and spirit was that of Christ Consciousness and we could and should use more of that.... Thanks be to God for Shawn and his family for carrying the torch. He was SO AWESOME!
he finds a way to completely shred all over the fret board, but still be able to play a very beautiful and soft riff. rip shawn.
I really never knew who Shawn was, until lately. You son, were a picker.........much respect.
Happy Birthday Shawn. your music is part of my life in my head to my heart for Eternity Love & Respect Nic.
His name was Lane, he was a a man of music, he was a master, it was his fate. His name was Lane, was he man or enigma? He was my brother "the guitar great". I'm sorry I can't be there with you, but I'm there in spirit .... he is with me in my heart and always will be. We all LOVE and miss you so much......HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my precious Shawn. :p

Thinking of you shawn.. yesterday I was in nashville at rockblock guitars and i asked the guy working in there if he knew of you, because I felt SURE you frequented this place. He said of course, and was immediately impressed that i was your cousin, i thought he was going to ask for MY autograph. You touched the lives of so many people with your music. you are missed today and everyday. Rest in peace cuz
