The Whitmore Sisters just released their brand new album, "Ghost Stories", and to celebrate we asked Eleanor and Bonnie Whitmore to tell us about the song "Friends We Leave Behind". Here is the story:

For those who don't know him, he was an integral part of the Austin music community. He toured and recorded with many well-known folks including Patty Griffin and The Chicks. He'd played bass on the first three Mastersons albums and Bonnie's first two. He was everyone's favorite bass player and Bonnie's guru.
