Legendary Fiddler Johnny Gimble Dead at 88

Johnny Gimble, one of the most revered and awarded fiddlers in the history of country music, died Saturday (May 9) near his home in Dripping Springs, Texas, at the age of 88. He had suffered a series of strokes during his final years.

John Paul Gimble was born May 30, 1926, in Tyler, Texas. In a 1981 documentary, he said the first music that made an impression on him he heard from his uncles, who played mandolin and fiddle. He began playing fiddle himself when he was 10 and, by the time he was 12, was performing with his brothers in a band called the Rose City Swingsters.

Although it occupied only two years of his career — 1949-1951 — Gimble acknowledged that he would always be known for having been a member of Bob Wills’ Texas Playboys western swing band, in which he played fiddle and electric mandolin.

He was in the Bob Wills band for only 2 years but is remembered for this.

Il était dans le groupe de Bob Wills pour seulement 2 ans, mais on se souvient de ce bien qu'il est devenu l'un des meilleurs violoneux de la musique country.

Mr. Gimble grew up on a farm near Tyler in east Texas, spent two years with Wills' group beginning in 1949, and later became a much-requested session musician in Nashville, performing with Haggard, Willie Nelson, George Strait, Dolly Parton, and Loretta Lynn. He won six Country Music Association awards as best instrumentalist. - AP
