DAVID P. LINDLEY
March 21, 1944 – March 3, 2023
David will not soon be forgotten. His impact and influence were felt by countless individuals throughout the world. Those of us that got to spend time with him were changed for the better by his kindness, his talents, his spirit, his generosity, and his brilliant sense of humor. His wife Joanie and daughter Rosanne miss him terribly.
After studying guitar at the feet of this already brilliant young master in 1967, I reconnected with Dave in 2002 and we worked on many projects and gigs together over the 20 years that followed. We were planning new projects up through last fall — one being the update of his archaic HTML website that I had built in the dark ages. Dave fully intended to resume touring and along with the new website, he wanted to relaunch merch sales to go along with hitting the road. He had also found a few CDs and other bits of old tour merchandise. He was also interested in offering digital downloads of albums that were no longer in print and are often being offered online for ridiculous sums of money.
With Joanie's approval, we are going ahead with Dave's wishes and I am pleased to announce that The Official Mr. Dave Pleemhead Store is now open for business! A few digital downloads are now available with more to come very soon. I hope to add physical merchandise in the near future.
All proceeds will go to Joanie & Rosanne Lindley, as with the tee-shirt fundraiser that so many of you supported. The "business" of wrapping up one's existence on this planet can be overwhelming. Dave would not have wanted his girls to struggle.
I am honored to volunteer to keep David's legacy alive via this website and our Facebook group. I miss my friend dearly and know that many of you feel the same way.
