I have so many happy memories of Warren who will always be 'Skoots' to me. Over many years of meeting up at Deep Purple gigs he was always full of fun and a good friend.
We really missed him when he left to return to a quieter life.
Dear Skoots you always made me laugh and now you have brought tears to my eyes. You will never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace dear friend.

My wife Kathy and i first met Skoots in 1997 at a Deep Purple show and continued to meet him for many years to come. He was so warm, funny and caring. He took us in with open arms. I hope we will meet again one day. May you rest in peace Skoots.

If not for my friend Skoots my life would have been vastly different. Meeting Skoots changed my entire life direction. If not for him I would never have been a roadie or a volunteer at the Big House. I would not have the vast number of friends that I have. I would never have had the access to music that I so enjoy. All because of Skoots Lyndon my life has been fabulous. I loved him and will never forget him. Rest well my friend.

We miss your surprise visits to watch tv, drink v&t’s and smoke heaters. During the virus we missed your hugs but always enjoyed your dark humor and wry wit. Was certainly hoping to resume card games in the not too distant future. Never got tired of the stories, no matter how many times we heard them. You brought us a lot joy and now heartache. On a selfish note, our world got much smaller and more boring.

I was shocked and saddened this week to learn that my friend and Dixie Dregs drum tech and monitor ace, Skoots Lyndon, passed away. Skoots was the consummate band mate, always seeking perfection in everything he did. He was an extremely kind and generous human being, periodically checking in on me to see how my parents are doing and how life, in general, is faring. He also happened to be one of the best storytellers who ever graced our planet. His years of touring the globe with Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse Band, and numerous other acts, created a vast library of colorful stories; truly amazing stories that only a wordsmith like Skoots could impart to an audience lucky enough to be in his presence. My memory is filled with moments like these, where I would be hanging on every word, completely engrossed, often in stitches, for hours on end. RIP Skoots. Your memory will live on in the hearts of all of us who were so fortunate to have you in our lives.
