Reggie, thank you for the memories and the music. RIP, my friend.

For many of us who grew up with the music of The Quests in the sixties and seventies, it was a sad moment when I learned of the passing of it's lead guitarist, Reggie Verghese, who died from a heart attack June 16 2015. He was a great musician and notably one of the best axemen in the region. His good friend and rhythm guitarist, Jap Chong, too passed away last year on March 2. To Reggie, we thank you for the music and may your soul find eternal peace in the arms of our Lord.
