RIP Max Bennett I'm saddened beyond, to hear of Max's passing. One of the sweetest men I've had the blessing of knowing. His talent was incredible, playing every chance he got. His resume reads like a who's who in the biz; being a member of the Wrecking Crew and playing with icons Sinatra, Presley, Monroe, Mitchell, Zappa and so many more...the largest movie studios, too. Then there were thousands of hours playing as a studio musician & live performer. We were lucky to have him here, as our local neighbor, playing in Laguna Beach. Max is a true legend & the kindest man you'd ever meet. Ill miss him immensely and remember him fondly. Rest easy, Max. My condolences to Teri, his family and extended musical family. 💔
Max, you will be missed very much. Thanks for the great inspiration and many, many hours of great music. I enjoyed our conversations over the years and your positive approach to music and life will always be valued. Take care on your new journey and I'll see you on the flipside!
Max, they did not break the mold when they made you. You were a free hand one of a kind. I have always been a fan of your playing and humanity. One of the cats I always looked to for inspiration. I will miss you but man, what a legacy you have left us with. Your groove will be treasured for many years to come. Always in our hearts. Loved you my brother and feel I am a better man and musician for having known you. Lee
