This is so sad. He was too young. Although I hadn't seen Ashley for a few years, I remember him very fondly. I always saw him at the Austin Record Convention. He was a great guy and the record collecting community will really miss him. Requiescat in pace, Ashley. Gary Johnson, Rockaway Records, Los Angeles, CA.

My condolences from an old vinyl fanatic who had many fine transactions with Ashley in years past. Our occasional get-togethers in Austin are fondly remembered.

It is especially hard to think that someone as wonderful as Ashley has been taken. We didn't always agree (politics) but even in our disagreement we were still friends. Ashley was exactly 4 days younger than me and I can't believe he's gone. My wife and I will keep him in our hearts and minds as long as we live. And I'm sure he and I will meet again in that unknown place. Maybe, not only spin some vinyl, but maybe even make our own music. Long live the 'Stereo Shoestring', and long live the memories of one of the sweetest guys I've ever had the pleasure to know and love as a real friend.

I knew Ashley as a legendary figure in the international record collecting community. Then my wife and I vacationed in San Antonio and drove down t Corpus Christi and visited Ashley for an afternoon and found him to be a bright, warm, and very welcoming person. Many people will miss him.

I had no idea Ashley had gone on to such distinction in the vinyl industry, having lost touch during the Boogie Shop days. I remeber being floored by the sight of the largest record collection I'd seen stepping into his West Ave digs in Austin, tho' of comparatjvely modest yardage it seems now. Such a wild guy, like a local David Crosby, and to see him living with his mother in Corpus, plastic carpet protectors in the hallway, her rousting our germy selves out of his bedroom.

I grew up in Corpus Christi with Ashley in the 60's and we played in a band together called the Clock Work Orange. I remember him as a friend and nice man with a love for music. I still remember him skidding up to a stop in his Mustang on loose gravel one day and almost running over my father who was out front watering the grass. College and careers moved us apart and the last time I saw him was in the mod 80;s I was sadden to hear of his passing and wish the family my condolences...Richard Lalor

Ashley was a wonderful friend who was there for me when my family was falling apart and who was ,kind to my mother. He introduced me to so much music! His wit, style and personality will never be forgotten. My heart goes out to Kara and his family. I will treasure memories of Ashley forever. He's spinning records in heaven now. God bless you and thank you for the life of Ashley.
Roger Maglio
Ashley was a true friend and unique in his own way. He was one of the world's foremost authorities on rare records from the 1960's & 1970's. He helped me with Gear Fab Records when I started the business back in 1996. His assistance, suggestions, guidance and love for this music cannot be replaced. Rest In Peace my friend.
Bob Steele
Ashley was a special friend. Funny, interesting, and kind, ever since junior high school. College roommate, Longhorn fan, knew so much about music. Greatest sympathy to his family and other friends. He will never be forgotten.
Danny Silkwood
Ashley was a great friend and I will truly miss him and our talks about rock and roll in Corpus Christi. I still remember being a teenager and walking into Ashley's High Speed Boogie Shop and spending every penny I had on the hottest new record. Those were indeed great times. Cara, you have my deepest sympathy and if I can do anything for you, please let me know. Farewell to my friend Ashley.
Jake The Snake
Ashley was & always will be "THE MAN". When I would go to the Austin record convention he would take time to talk with me. I'll sure will miss him, a true friend. I'm sure he's looking for rare records up there in Heaven.
