Maine Sunday Telegram/Andrew Govatsos

The Blend along with Bill Chinnock proved that artists from Maine could make it to the big time. WBLM made a commitment to exposing these great local artists back in the day and is still so proud of our history with The Blend.  The best tribute to JD is the ongoing fundraising to get instruments into the hands of school aged kids with the Rusty Rocket Foundation. Thank you JD, you will forever be in our hearts here in Blimpville.

Share your memories of The Blend and JD here on our web site and on our Facebook and Twitter pages with the hashtag #RustyRocketFoundation.

Enjoy the sweet tunes! BTW...The Prize is the last one down, featuring a wicked scorcher of a guitar solo from JD. We knew you were looking for it.
