CARTER (1946 - 2011)

Carter, the legendary A&R man, producer, songwriter, manager, and lifelong fighter for songs with proper bridges (and, where possible, proper nouns) died on May 10 in Palm Springs. He was 65.

We're all in a state of shock and sadness by the news of Carter's passing. The band and all of us in the Chickenfoot camp will miss his unique & brilliant guidance.

Carter was a true gentleman and a class act. I was really looking forward to playing a round of golf with him one of these days. He always treated me with respect and kindness, and I will miss him. Thanks for your spirit, Carter.

As caboboy3 said? Carter was a true gentleman and class act. He touched many lives with his incredible talents. And they in turn trusted him. Carter knew exactly what he wanted and what should be done. He had an abundant inventiveness and was prolific in that way. Our paths crossed because I worked in radio. He was kind to me also. And I had total respect for him. I want the men of Chickenfoot and other musicians who knew him to know the spirit in me honors the spirit in such a man as Carter. When I think of him? A smile will always cross my face.
