Playing bass in the Shunyi Gentlemen's Club was one of the absolute highlights of my time at WAB. I would eagerly await those after school Thursday sessions with Murray, Dylan and Todd, as we would hash out the evening's practice session with a whole lot of humor and a whole lot of laughter.

Murray was the ringleader of fun and calming creativity. I am a guitar player and had, up to that point, never played the bass guitar. Yet, there was no judgement on Murray's part (or the rest of band for that matter); quite the contrary, he always assisted me with an enthusiasm for the creative process that was inspiring. More than that, he had a calm about him that made it easy to feel safe to take risks… a true teacher.

The last communication I had with Murray was a few months back via WeChat. He told me that he missed the SGC days… I do too, my friend. And, I miss you. Thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Going to listen "Not Finished Just Yet", by Bernard Fanning and think of you… you nailed that song every time.
