On July 13th at 10pm, James Allen Hill passed away in the company of his family, at age 49. For those of you that knew him, you knew how talented a bass player he was. I interviewed James personally around 1988 and rated him a 5/5 at the time. His kind of talent is exactly what we seek, so Proship hired James on his first cruise ship gig with Chandris Fantasy Cruises. Subsequently James Allen Hill became a regular ship musician working for Celebrity, Carnival, Crystal, Disney, Norwegian Caribbean, Princess and Regent Seven Sea Cruises.
I’d like to share his talent with you so his memory lives on:
His mother’s words:
As the subject line indicates, James battle is finished. He played his last riff about 10 PM last evening, with his family all around him. We took him into hospital early Tuesday morning, and he only suffered another couple of days, but now he is at peace, and his suffering is done. For that we can be grateful.
Again, thank you for your love and friendship over the years. I hope you know how much James loved you all. Some of you got to see him in the last couple of days, and he did appreciate your visits, and so do I. Thank you.
