Site Content

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.

Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.

Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.

Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

Rest in Peace TOM GURNEY

REMEMBERING TOMMY GURNEY: A Great Musician, A Great Human Being

The Northwest Indiana music community suffered a terrible loss on January 30th, when the news broke that Tom Gurney, the guitarist and the cornerstone of The Country Roads Band had passed away. 

The news of Tommy's death stunned me, as he and I had just been messaging 3 days earlier. He reached out to comment about the videos that were posted of local musicians performing live acoustic tunes at my record store.  He said he enjoyed the video postings. I mentioned that he should come down to the store and take part some Sunday soon, to which Tommy responded that he wasn't well, but to keep him in my prayers so that it might happen.  I had no idea Tommy was sick, nor that he'd been hospitalized, when we connected briefly for what would sadly be the last time. 

 I first met Tommy back when he was working with U.S. 99 and we were hosting frequent U.S. 99 parties at the old Club Dimension in Highland during the
"hat craze" of the early 1990s, when it seemed every city dweller was sporting hats, boots and learning to line dance to the sounds of Brooks & Dunn's "Boot Scootin' Boogie."  Tommy was the kind of jolly and likable character you just couldn't help but notice; he was prone to call you a"Rascal" and his laugh was infectious. 

Over the years, he and I crossed paths many times, whether he was a guest on one of my radio shows, playing a gig at one of the fairs or fests I booked, or whether he was coaxing me up on stage to sing
"Johnny B. Good" or "Locomotive Breath" one those nights when he and his musical partner in crime, Bernie Glim, brought in to emcee at gigs for The Country Roads Band.

Yes, Tommy was a country musician and a real picker, but he could certainly rip out Tull licks and hold his own on when it came to playing rock 'n' roll.  He could rock out like nobody's business when he had a mind to do so, and there were quite a few times he had a mind to at shows we did together. Good times, great memories.  Tommy was always the brightest light in every room he was in; his personality and good nature just made people smile. 

Tommy always had stories to tell and would talk about his time on the road with country star Freddie Fender, his time working with U.S. 99 and the station's personalities -- John "The Katman" Katzbeck, Big John Howell, Ramblin' Ray Stevens, and the rest of them.  Tommy loved playing music and always seemed to have a big ol' smile on his face and a sparkle in his eye while on stage. That is the image I have of Tommy as I sit here listening to his "Tom's Boogie" tune as I mourn the loss and celebrate the memories made.  That image of him on stage smiling and playing his heart out for his audience and the sound of his laugh will always stay with me now that Tommy is gone.

Tom Gurney was a kind soul, a good man and a great musician.  He always had a welcoming smile, said goodbye with a hug, and affectionately called me and others he cared about "brother."  

I will miss this wonderful and gentle human being who for as long as I had the privilege of knowing him, always seemed to put others first and who never said no to a worthy cause, especially when it came to our U.S. Veterans and our military personnel.   Tommy did a lot of good for a lot of people through his music, as have the other surviving members of The Country Roads Band.

Tom Gurney surely earned angel wings hundreds of times over with the goodness that he brought to this earth and the love he shared with those fortunate enough to know him. God has a special place in Heaven for people like Tom, who gave so much joy and happiness.
Rest In Peace my friend!
