Brett Flowers passed on in 2010. We remember him through his songs. The following info was found on his MySpace page:
Bio:

Drawing from diverse musical influences, the sound of B.F.E. is comprised of monster grooves coupled with guitar tones that range from spanky-clean to killer cut to crushing blows, punctuated by strong, melancholic vocals and compelling lyrics. An in-house poll conducted at a local Dallas performance described B.F.E. as a ‘cross between Andy Timmons and King’s X,’ and The Sound magazine said B.F.E. is hard-hitting rip-rock with a distinctive Texas flavor.”

This tight three-piece group consists of frontman Brett Flowers, who wields his unique homemade guitar ‘Whitey’ like he was born with a guitar in his hands; Rod ‘Legz’ Jansen, one of the area’s most powerful seasoned drummers, provides the thunder beneath Brett’s wings and shares his distinctive voice in harmony with Brett’s leads; and Billy Pixley, the group’s newest member, groovin’ the low end on bass as he once did with Nazareth’s Manny Charlton. In a setting that clearly showcases the considerable talents of these three musicians, the members of B.F.E. have combined their skills to achieve what so many have not… a distinctive style and sound that is instantly recognizable, yet uniquely their own.

See them perform live at the DFW area’s finest rock venues, including FireWater Bar and Grill, Monte Carlos, the Galaxy Club, and the Hard Rock Cafe Dallas. To date, B.F.E. has had the privilege to perform with bands such as Seven Mary Three, Jerry Cantrell’s Cardboard Vampyres, Little Green Men, Foghat, Georgia Satellites, Buggs Henderson, Maylee Thomas, Aska, Lillian Axe, Velvet Poker Dogs, Every Mother’s Nightmare, Bloodroot, Robin Trower, Rick Derringer and Pat Travers. B.F.E. is also active in performing for several local festivals and benefits including the North Texas Rock Rally. B.F.E. has also had three tunes featured in the soundtrack of the multi-award winning indie film, ‘Jimbo’s A’Comin.’ (This page is maintained by Infinite Source Productions.)

Influences:
In Brett’s own words: “My influences are basically Jimi Hendrix, then Randy Rhodes, and finally Stevie Ray Vaughn, in that order. I think my singing style sounds like David Gilmour, but my songs kind of sound like a big Texas Rock Metal Roll with a creamy blues-funk filling.” Sounds Like:
