Owen Gibbins / Reunited with my late fathers guitar after a lifetime

Reunited with my late fathers guitar after a lifetime. 

My first jaunt to the USA was in my mothers belly. So I met Tommy Walker months before I was born. He was a friend of my dad during his early 70s touring/recording in the states. I got to meet Tommy in person over the years and it was great to see him again recently. This time he brought an amazing surprise. When my dad flew back to Wales in the 70's, he gave Tom his guitar... And he just gave it back to me. A 1957 Fender Musicmaster. I can't believe it. Well I can, because Tom is an absolute gem. Thank you Tommy! To have my dads writing guitar 40+ years later is...can't even explain it.

My dad never talked about his writing process. Once I turned 20 I saw him write constantly. So I never though to ask him about the 70's process as I was enjoying listening to him at the present. He was very humble. He never blew his own horn about the old days. He would always surprise me with a rare story if he caught me listening to The Who or something. Joe Cocker came on the radio and we were hanging out on the porch. "The first time I ever smoked weed, it was handed to me by Joe Cocker" he said. I was blown away. I never knew their paths crossed, let alone hung out etc.

Not everyone was impressed by his technique. Rolling Stone likened his drumming to "basketballs landing in a vat of oatmeal".

"We threw that one away", smiles Gibbins. "It was filler. 
Harry took it to number 1. Mariah Carey did it not too long ago. 
She got to number 1 as well. She just bought me a swimming pool"

My husband was friends with Mike Gibbins and his band (FBM) used to practice at Gibbin's house often. 

My husband is not only a musician, he's a funeral director/embalmer too. (gotta make a living!) 
Long story short, my husband embalmed Mike Gibbins.

My husband can't go into any details of how he died, etc. so I can't say. I think that all has to stay private. 
But he did tell me it was VERY odd to embalm a friend, he's done a few. I do know that he didn't even realize it was Mike Gibbins until he started cleaning him. He did a double take and read the ankle tag again and saw Michael G. At first he just read Gibbins and he didn't make the connection. 
That was in Orlando, over a year ago.

I have acquired the right to publish this whole interview with Mike in the future so keep an eye and ear open for the truth “ from the horses mouth " to coin a phrase.
