My sincere condolences to Rodney's family and friends! I am truly saddened to hear of his passing! On June 2, I tied to reach out to him after quite some time and I had a strange feeling when I did not her back from him. Some inner voice told me to google his name. He was a unique, kind hearted and super creative and talented guy. I have some polaroid photos that he gave me to scan for him of his time playing in Europe many years ago. And I also photographed/digitized ALL of his wonderful artwork. He has all of those files, but I would be happy to give those files to his family. Can someone please connect with me to let me know how I can get that to you? Thank you and and Peace to you all and Peace to you, Rodney James Baker.
