This is so sad. Absolutely correct that his guitar pretty much made Heart Shaped World, which was one of my favorite records at the time. I saw Chris Isaak back in the day opening for Tina Turner, Wilsey was probably on guitar.

Just shared this with a friend that used to see Chris and the band a lot in SF.

How terrible! To this day that's one of my favorite albums. Addiction is cruel and doesn't care who you are. RIP, James Wilsey.
