Just read that John Hickman passed away at 78. I know he had been having health and financial problems and could no longer play or teach at Berline's shop. I got to meet John a few times doing festivals with Berline, Crary and Hickman. He and his wife were always very friendly and welcoming. I have his picture on my banjo wall along with Doug Dillard and Pat Cloud, all my California banjo influences. I also can't help but wonder what happened to John's checkerboard RB-6.

John's banjo was for sale several years ago at Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville. Don't know who bought it.
