Zum Wochenstart leider eine traurige Nachricht: John A. Craviotto, Herz und Seele der Craviotto Drum Company und bekannt vor allem für seine exquisiten Snaredrums, ist letzten Freitag verstorben. R.I.P.!
Hier die offizielle Verlautbarung der Craviotto Drum Company im Wortlaut:
»It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Master Craftsman and dear friend, Johnny Craviotto. Johnny left us on July 15th, 2016.
Johnny was, and always will be, the world’s finest drum craftsman. No one had his knowledge, his skill, and his passion for his craft. He created instruments of incredible sonic and visual beauty, and those instruments have graced stages, recording studios, and collections worldwide. His contribution to the world of drum building has been without equal. We are truly fortunate that as the heart and soul of the Craviotto Drum Company it was vitally important to Johnny to pass along his skills, honed over a lifetime, and his innovations in the art and craft of drum building to his trusted colleagues and protégés at Craviotto, so that the "Craviotto-way" could carry on for the next generation. This living art is his legacy, and we will continue with his vision. Please celebrate it with us.
