+1 to this. A good musician who was involved in a lot of really good music.

Jeez, I now find out about every significant celebrity death on TRF. :facepalm:

This one just plain sucks. Very talented guy, wrote/co-wrote innumerable popular songs, played concerts before millions ... and I bet he could have walked down most city streets and not been recognized. Real loss to the music world. A relic from when music really was musical.
