This hits me like a ton of bricks and I probably some one who knows him the least. Was impressed with his talent and personalty and it was a pleasure to follow his life from afar. Just the other day I chuckled as he revealed his purchase of a new video game machine. I was lucky to be inspired by his joy in music and I know he was looking forward to his next tour. I know life is full of twists and turns but this is absolutely the last news I expected today. My condolences to all he knew and touched. It is clear he loved his family and friends dearly.
