Precious and a Few always had a strong affect on me. I love the chord progressions and harmonies. Such a simple Song just two lines. I play guitar every day this is one of my favorites. I’m 77 as of November 2020. I’m still playing my own guitar and it keeps me going. Songs like this make me remember the great 60s and 70s music. Thank you Sonny for bring joy to my life for over 50 years starting with the Time Won’t Let Me with the Outsiders.

Sonny lived not far from my parents. He was always super kind and when I got engaged to my now ex-wife, Sonny called my phone and sang a few lines of "Precious And Few" to her.... It made her so happy. I miss him dearly......

I never knew Sonny but I always wished I could. My sincere condolences to his wife and family. Sonny, my favorite song you ever did was precious and few. I loved all your songs but I really thought that song was so beautiful. I seen you back in the 90's in New Richmond, Ohio and you sang precious and few so beautifully. I'm so glad I got to see you in person!

RIP SUNNY

I didn't know Sonny had passed until I heard it on television tonight when it was mentioned on a PBS My Music show with TJ. I always loved Sonny's music. May it live on forever. RIP Sonny
