It’s hard to believe, but it’s been over 40 years since the world lost John Lennon. I guess we still have a long way to go!

Unfortunately, a little tyrant in Russia and a few so-called “leaders” in the Middle East don’t subscribe to John’s beliefs. But all the good in this world will cement their fates in history. Please support the people of Ukraine in any way you can, especially this winter. Remember all of those innocent lives lost in Israel, on both sides, while you celebrate the holidays.

I still believe that if we all join together and rise up against greed and evil, we will make the world a better place! I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays, no matter what you celebrate! Let’s toss aside our differences and vow to make 2024 and beyond better by giving peace a chance forever!

Sadly, we lost some truly great musicians and music industry legends in 2023…Jeff Beck, Robbie Bachman (BTO), David Crosby, Tom Verlaine (Television), Burt Bacharach, David Lindley, Gary Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Tim Bachman (BTO), Gordon Lightfoot, Tina Turner, Tony Bennett, Sinéad O’Connor, Randy Meisner (The Eagles, Poco), Robbie Robertson (The Band), Bernie Marsden (UFO, Whitesnake), Jimmy Buffett, Steve Harwell (Smash Mouth), Dwight Twilley, Mars Williams (The Psychedelic Furs), Geordie Walker (Killing Joke), Shane MacGowan (The Pogues), Denny Laine (The Moody Blues, Wings) and Jeffrey Foskett (The Beach Boys)….to name a few.

Pickguardian will be closed December 22-25, 2023 for Christmas and December 30, 2023-January 1, 2024 for New Year’s. Orders placed during these times will be processed once we re-open. Email received during that time will be answered ASAP.
