HARMONICA MAN TERRY McMILLAN DIES

Terry McMillan, an A-list session harmonica player and percussionist, died Friday, Feb. 2, in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., at 53 after a long illness.

He performed on TV specials with Garth, Neil Young, Randy Travis and Chet Atkins, among others. In 1993, Terry was part of an all-star band that performed at President Clinton’s inauguration, joining pop superstars like Carole King and Michael McDonald. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, Feb. 7, in Sevierville, Tenn.
