Just saw this elsewhere online.

Jim Dunlop, Sr., founder of the Dunlop Manufacturing company, has died.

Condolences to this family & friends.

I've used a lot of different picks--and like to try new ones & sort of collect them, and many are Dunlops, and the main pick I keep coming back to (Tortex) is a Dunlop.

“I got a postcard from a friend of mine,” the entrepreneur remembered. “It had a picture of a bikini-clad lady and said it was 90 degrees in Muscle Beach. It was 12 degrees below in Ottawa. I decided I’m getting the hell out of here.
I didn't know about the Canadian connection.

I didn't know he had lived in Ottawa. I wonder if any of the old-timers in the music community here knew him.

I like the Tortex picks as well.

I've had several of his brands of picks over the years. R.I.P. Mr. Dunlop.
