In this week's paper, we published some awesome photos by Mark Gilliland, a long-time RFT freelance photographer who also documented major rock stars displaying their love of gear crafted by St. Louis Music. (Brand names include major players such as Ampeg, Crate and Alvarez.) Check back here tomorrow afternoon for more about St. Louis Music and its funeral show, which takes place on Saturday, December 13. Click on the photo of Bo Diddley, Johnnie Johnson and Billy Gibbons below for a larger slideshow of Gilliland's work.
