RIP Tom Gray of Delta Moon
With a heavy heart and loss for words, I want to let you know that Tom Gray passed away last night at Emory Dekalb Hospital after a long and incredibly brave battle with cancer.
Tom and I have been the copilots of Delta Moon for the last 20 years. With countless shows played, miles travelled, and so many friends made along the way, it has been an amazing and rewarding journey. I can tell you, Tom never took any of it for granted. He always gave 110%, even under the most difficult circumstances.
He was a great writer, player and frontman. Tom’s lyrics touched people, spoke to them, made them happy or maybe think a little. Tom knew that and it meant the world to him. That’s why he was here, it was his calling. He was old school and I learned a lot from him.
My heart goes out to his wife Janet, son Jim, and his family. I will miss you brother.
Rest in Peace,
Delta Moon has been one of the musical gems of Atlanta over the last couple of decades. Its various iterations were always remarkably tight and provided wonderful blues music. Tom’s picking and singing will be missed by many of us.
Tom was a great musician and songwriter and a nice person, he will be greatly missed.
Sorry to hear this. I was unaware until today 3-5-22. Only saw DM play once but got his mailings for many years and recall when he first learned of his cancer. Literate rock and roll….sadly becoming a museum piece. RIP
My belated condolences’ to Tom’s family on the passing of their husband and father. I first saw Delta Moon when they fronted for the Robert Cray band. I followed them off and on over the years and saw them in concert at Eddie’s attic a couple of times. I have a couple of their CD’s in my collection. I write all this to say that Tom and the band had meaning in my life and that he and Delta Moon will be missed.
