This is another black day in my calendar.....i'm shocked over the news that my dear friend Greg Guidry is dead.
I spoke to Greg what seems now to be only hours before he died.....below is the press release.
Greg was one of the true westcoast legends and he was such a funny and sweet guy....he will be missed dearly by many.

Burned body identified as songwriter

August 1, 2003

FAIRVIEW, Tenn. (AP) -- A charred body found Monday in a car parked
inside a home's garage has been identified as that of
singer-songwriter Greg Guidry. He was 53.

Guidry, who sang with Michael McDonald and the Allman Brothers Band,
had a hit single in 1982 with "Goin' Down." The song reached No. 17
on the pop charts.

He and his five siblings sang in a gospel group known as the Guidry
Family and as teenagers were signed as an R&B act to Curtom Records
by Curtis Mayfield.

Police are investigating the incident and have not ruled out foul
play. The body was identified by dental records.

"We did a full investigation on Monday and Tuesday and have some
ideas but will wait for the autopsy report," said Keith Crowell,
Fairview's fire chief.

Guidry had been living at the home where his body was found since
April. Fairview is a small town just outside Nashville. He is
survived by a son, daughter and grandson.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
