Hi Sonny, I come over to this thread every now and then to read the things you write. Also would love to read your book when it is published. Sorry you have so much problem with your website. :(

Happy Birthday Sonny, I heard you were born with a banjo in your hand and a beard on your chin, is that true? Have a great day.

Hope all is truly OK with Sonny. This thread was about to drop off the last page, so I thought it best to ask again......

Looks like Sonny had some work done on a knee as he just posted this on Bluegrass Today:
I’m in the process of rehabbing a complete knee replacement surgery and I think I should tell you that it ain’t no friggin’ walk in the park. If you remember IBMA in Raleigh I gave my little speech for the Bill Emerson induction into the Hall Of Fame in a wheel chair. That and my white sox. (FYI, I was offered black replacements but I figured if I was stupid enough to walk off and forget dark sox with a dark suit, I deserved to be laughed at and ridiculed) Larry Stephenson was kind enough to take me there in his bus, and Derek Vaden, John and Josh Gooding, Red Jones, Larry, and Lincoln Hensley were kind enough to wheel me around, and I want to thank them for doing that for me.

Hey, to all of you who has stuck with me for the past few years I want to apologize for my absence the past couple months. My health has not been the best but I don't intend to use that as an excuse. Matter of fact, I have no intention of fabricated an excuse. I just haven't felt up to it lately. I had complete knee replacement November and that made matters worse. The rehab is not a fun thing and not being able to walk for the past couple months without a stupid walker....well, damned if it doesn't sound like I'm complaining...I guess I am. That's not like me, but being totally immobile and dependent on others is just not my thing. But unfortunately that's where I am at the present. I'll try to do better, promise!  

Hey, get this, Joe Mullins and his Guitar player,Adam McIntosh were doing the Opry last night and so Joe stopped and got a set of Ugly Tuners put of his banjo. How bout that? 

I'm outa here. Thank you all for hanging in there. If it were reversed I'd do the same for you. Ask Stringman, he'll tell you....Do't get no ideas!!!!!

Sorry that the recovery is a bummer, and you’re not complaining- just being real in my book.
Here’s to a great recovery, and a Happy 2020!

Sonny,

Everyone  I have talked to says that knee replacement rehab is a bear. Hopefully you will be in better shape by the time the spring flowers are budding and there is more worth getting out for. Good luck with the grind.

Glad to have you back, Sonny. We missed your smiling face. Knee replacement isn't fun, but hopefully you've got it licked.

Yeah, a lot of my BG friends in the SoCa had both hip & knee surgery, & they all said knees were the most difficult to recover. Hang in there Sonny, we're all rootin' for ya. You'll get there.

Sonny - hope you feel better sooner than later. Myself, I’m ready for Spring...

Can you tell me about these ugly tuners, how one might buy a set and pricing? The peg head on my banjo is fiddle shape vs double cut - will the ugly tuners fit this style?

All the best!

I thought I had been abandoned when just out of the black and white several good wishes appear. Thank you. Thank you all. Words can not tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of your good wishes...and the thoughts.

This Knee rehab is not fun. It's not the pain, I'm ok with that...it's necessary and I know that but being confined is just not me. It had to be done, but....

Bill asked about ugly tuners. They will definitely go on a fiddle peg head. Some people run when they hear the price, but if you are a serious banjo player and want the best, these are the right choice. Ask anyone who has them. I guarantee them. If within two weeks you are not satisfied with their performance, and they have not been altered nor abused in any way, and still in new condition, I will refund your money. The price is $285 plus $5 shipping in the USA.  Order the tuner by sending a cashiers check to; Sonny Osborne. PO Box 647. Hendersonville, Tennessee 37077. Include your mailing address Please.

Speaking of ugly tuners, Joe Mullins and Adam McIntosh (of Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers) came by last Friday before playing The Opry and Adam installed a set of UGLIES on Joe's banjo. I haven't heard back from him so I can't give a report....YET! I will though. Joe owns several radio stations in the Xenia Ohio area and Adam plays Guitar and does vocal with Joe's band and also operates The Banjo Store.

Glad to hear you're doing better Sonny. My Mom had both hips and both knees replaced... She said by far knees were the worst bounce back from. It's GREAT to have you back on here and I hope you continue to improve with each passing day.
