    My heart sunk when I heard the news this morning while getting ready for work. I had the opportunity to have my path cross Kenny’s when we both worked as hairstylists for the same company. We worked beside each other and he would always have me laughing. I was so happy to know that he was able to live his dream out of being a successful musician. But now it seems i’m crying…crying over you. My heart goes out to his family and the people who’s lives he touched.

    Kenny – every day you showed us all your amazing bright light. You constantly shone with talent, warmth and grace, and shared your special gifts with everyone who crossed your path. You will remain ever beautiful in our memories, and the world will be a lesser place without you. But you will shine on in my memory forever as a true friend and special talent.

    It was such a sad day when I heard the news about Kenny, he will be sadly missed. he was such a sweet & talented person. He always had a smile for everyone, even if you hadn’t seen him for a while he never forgot you, he was a very funny guy always made you laugh. His music will play on forever.
    Kenny you will be in our hearts & thoughts forever. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family.

  5. Lisa Oxley Says:

    I have a lot of great memories of Kenny from when I was a kid, and I’ll always remember how proud I was to tell people I knew him over the years. He was an amazing friend to my father and our family will miss him dearly.

  6. Pauline MacLeod Says:

    I met Kenny back in the 70’s when he was with The Deserters and they played at a bar that I went to. I’d see him over the years whether he was playing with Platinum Blonde or by himself. He was always friendly to me. I know he would have met a lot of people so I was surprized that he remembered me. I hadn’t seen him the last few years but I had never forgotten him and had often wondered what he was up to. He was such a nice and funny guy. I still have a hard time knowing I will never get the chance to see him again.

    You will be missed by many Kenny. RIP.


    Only the mountains last forever… Chief Joseph

    I found this out by accident (Aug.2009) for I was searching for ol platinum blonde information. Of coarse wishing for a reunion tour in the U.S. I am in total shock and so bummed to hear. Kenny’s music will forever be in memory. So sorry to hear.

  14. Kim Says:

    Kenny, you were such a funny, creative, kind, sensitive man – I still miss you almost a year later. Life was never dull – there was always something happening with you! 🙂 I wish all the best to your family, especially your son, Devlin. You will always be remembered.

  15. JTomkinson Says:

    Your songs always bring back great memories, You were a great artist, sad to see you go.

  16. Dan Ferguson Says:

    I had the privilege to hang with Kenny in the 90’s. Had some good times and he was apart of one of my favorite stories from my youth. As life goes, we lost contact and then one day last year I was talking to a friend about Platnum Blonde and I mentioned what a great guy Kenny was. It wasn’t until then that I had learned that he had passed. I felt sick from shock, and wished I had of kept in touch, but I’m glad for the limited time we had.
    It’s over two years since you left us. The world lost a great artist that day and many of us a good friend. Miss ya bud.

  17. Koszalin Says:

    Thanks for stayin’ up with me that night at your house when I drank to much with Devlin. You were one of the good ones man.

    My sincerest sympathies for you Devlin.

  20. Martinus Says:

    I think this means that you will have to change the sumaibdon, no? ;)Furthermore, I’d rather prefer you guys posted in your own sites, and we could have an aggregator of sorts on the main Nohako Studios site.(I am too lazy to write that up though)Alternatively, we could use a proper multi-user CMS/blog engine like Melody or something, but I’m also too lazy for that But it’s really up to you guys. 😛
