Burke Ehmig - Guitarist- Friend-Band Mate -Memorial Video

This is a memorial video for the family and friends of Burke Ehmig, and anybody who ever knew him.

Burke played in a early rendition of the Chrissy Steele Band -performing in clubs in the Vancouver and British Columbia area circa late 1980s.
Burke was a great guitarist, an amazing musician, and all around fantastic human being. Although this video is a short moment in time , Burke went on to play with many other bands and had a long career as a musician playing everywhere....

If we could all be a more like Burke, the world would be better for it. He was gone much, much too soon. We love you Burke . Rest in peace my friend.
