Bee Spears, longtime friend of STMA founder Mark Dreyer, passed away Thursday December 8, 2011. "If it weren't for Bee I probably wouldn't have moved to Nashville over 20 years ago", he was a true friend and collaborator of mine for years. We had worked on various projects together and he will really be missed.
