John Erhardt Work & Career
“To say we’ll miss him is an understatement,” it continues. “It’s not gonna be the same from here on out nor should it. Death’s like that. We’ll continue to keep making up stuff, play it to the best of our abilities and make more records. There will be a hole and we’ll likely leave it that way. You can’t replace some things.”
“Those of you who knew John know that he held certain things ever close to his heart. His friends and his passion for his work in music and film would all be high on that list. But most of all, it was his family, especially his wife Denise and daughter Ivy…his great loves. He would misplace items constantly on the road, but he would never permit himself to be more than a few inches away from his most beloved tour accessory – a keychain holding a photo of him and his daughter from a vacation years ago. It was his good luck charm. It brought him home. Safe travels, bud. We love you.”
