I am here today with a heavy, sad heart. I just learned that my dear friend, Speed King (Brian Hanson), has passed away. For those of you who knew him, he was crazy for Deep Purple & Blue Oyster Cult. He was an outstanding guitar player! He loved muscle cars but was the proud owner of 2 caddy’s….lol.

Brian lost his life to a tragic canoeing accident.

Brian’s Obituary

I will miss my friend!

Rest in Speed King Heaven!

Sorry to bother Magic, but was he the Speed King active on the forum here and elsewhere ? I didn't know him personally, but I did exchange a few posts with him. He was a musical expert and great guy.
RIP and my condolences to you, his family and friends. Bummer :(

Been offline for a few years, I just saw this. Very sad to hear. SK and I had several good conversations over the years regarding music in general, guitar gear, etc. RIP brother! :rip:
