Shit! Not another fallen hero of mine! Damnit! :'( I'm willing to bet that his death won't get nearly the amount of attention it deserves.

I am not that familiar with Pentagram, and even less with this man who has just passed. But does anyone know, was he just one the early demos or what? Either way, a person of Metal passing always is a sad day.
