I've been going through a Quicksilver Messenger Service phase lately and have come to regard their first two LPs as late '60s San Fran classics. Their twin-guitar approach (Duncan with John Cipollina) predates the Allman Bros who did a similar thing a year or so later.

Gary was also in the Brogues of "I Ain't No Miracle Worker" fame for those garage rockers among us.

Terrible blow, such a huge loss. I absolutely loved QMS, much more so than Allmans. QMS were San Francisco's finest. RIP
