We are saddened by the news that Roland Janes has passed away.

The legendary guitarist played on Jerry Lee Lewis' great work and went on to form his own studio before settling in at Phillips Recording, where he recorded countless sessions. He was a special mentor to so many players and engineers in Memphis. He will be miss and loved.
