Re: Re: What happened Eddie Reed???

I am sad to report that Eddie was embroiled in a most serious legal matter. Such a shame that he could possibly lose his heretofore career by this charge. Such a talent, but being human like the rest of us with our own demons to contend with, he now is serving prison time. This information came to me from another most reliable musician, and I hope that the tactful facts I've stated here remain respectful to Eddie, and are being quoted accurately by myself. My sincerest apologies to Eddie and any others involved if I am stating anything untrue.
