I just heard a rumor that Bill Park (Bill@Welcome Home Studios) has passed away. Waiting to get some confirmation. Does anyone know anything?

I didn't know him, but I never doubted the info he posted was rock solid. Seemed like an all-around knowledgeable guy, and willing to share.

Very sad news, indeed. Although I haven't hung out here much lately, I recall a lot of insightful posts and learned an awful lot from him and always enjoyed hearing some of his personal stories with the rock and roll girlfriend. RIP Bill. frown

Oh, no!


I was just thinking of him and "the Rock 'n' Roll Girlfriend" this very morning, this very morning. I am saddened to learn this. He was a good guy.

I always enjoyed reading what he had to say, and about his escapades in the rock and roll '70s. I was glad when he showed up here again after a break.

R.I.P.

I think it's important to acknowledge the help and support Bill provided to us, here. From gear recommendations to mixing advice, I learned a lot from him. He was a good man and always willing to help out a friend. RIP, Bill.

Funnily enough, the phrase 'Rock 'n' Roll Girlfriend' came to me out of the blue just a couple of days ago & I thought of them both.

Just heard of Bill's passing on another audio-related forum where he was a member. He will be missed very much. I always admired his deep knowledge, professional background & experience, & his ability to respond respectfully to both sides in the sometimes heated world of internet communication.
Happy trails, Bill, travel well.

I'm late to this sad news - been away. Bill was great! A true fountain of knowledge! He and 'Zan walked me through some 'puter nightmares way back, like Photobucket and other software. RIP!

Oh man, that is terrible.
I learned a lot from Bill as well and had some great forum discussions-I didn`t know about his illness either.
RIP Bill, you will be missed.
