herc fede swirl guru
Herc Fede  R.I.P
February 18th 1969 - June 24th 2014
(45)

I spoke to a good friend the other day on the Phone who told me the terrible, shocking news that The Swirl Guru Herc Fede had passed away. 
I could not believe this news, it really shocked and upset me, although I never had the pleasure of meeting Herc or even speaking to him on the phone. 

  Anyone who has ever spent five minute searching the web for anything to do with swirl painting will know the world famous name of Herc Fede they will find lots of examples of his stunningly vibrant work.  His name and legacy is rightly lionized on ever guitar forum on the web.  10 years ago, one of those guys searching was me. I spent hours crawling over all of Herc’s web sites (more often than google bots) looking at gallery after gallery of his incredibly diverse and vibrant work which in turn inspired me to try.
I have lots of pictures of Herc’s swirls on multiple CD somewhere in the hundreds of disc I have.  I think I even have a picture of Joe Satriani with Herc holding a Donnie replica he had painted and when I find It, I will post it up here along with pictures of lots of Herc’s other work.


The Guitar world will be a duller one without Herc Fede’s amazing swirl paint jobs, that much is for sure.

 My deepest condolences go out to all his family members and close friends at this terrible time.

R.I.P Herc
