In Memory of

Gary Beck

How "The Stumble" was formed in 1969:

The last band I was in before I was drafted in November of 66 was Gordon Scott and The Seventh Resemblance.   When I got out of the Army, I quickly connected with the guys again and Gary Beck, Rob Anderson, and Randy Crawford, who were still with Gordon Scott, wanted to break away from Gordon.  We did that and "The Stumble" was formed with just the four of us.

A short time after we formed, Randy Crawford left the band to work for Outward Bound as a rock climbing instructor.  So "The Stumble" #2 was formed.

Clark Lynch, February 2011

We lost Gary Beck a few weeks ago.  Gary was about the best guitar player I ever met and played with in my life.  Our bands included what was originally "Gordon Scott and The Seventh Resemblance Blues Band," later to become "The Seventh Resemblance" 1966-1967 and after my military duty, "The Stumble" 1969.

Gary Beck should have been and still should be in the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.

Rest in Peace Gary (The Becker) Beck.
