Eddy Shaver

Eddy Shaver, who died of an overdose on December 31, 2000, at the age of 38, was a rare guitar talent. (He was planning to begin recording his first solo album on January 2, 2001.) Under the moniker Shaver, he and his father, outlaw singer/songwriter legend Billy Joe Shaver, cut a series of albums during the '90s that found usually level-headed (even jaded) critics tossing around the word masterpiece. Shaver has also played on records by Guy Clark, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson, and toured with Dwight Yoakam. Mostly, however, he is remembered for his groundbreaking work with his father.
