What sad news.
He wrote lyrics that gave an indication of how good of a person he was.
Very sad news.

Unexpected, but this is the way death knocks on our doors. I started hearing Shadow Gallery after watching 'V For Vendetta' movie. I wasn't really into their music, as they were too progressive for me. But the vocal play'd really nice. I recently lost a great friend, on the same conditions, and I can imagine how his family and friends are sad.

45 years old? too young.
Kick Ass, Die Young

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.
