Official ELP archivist who shared many fine concerts on Youtube that would otherwise have gone unheard. I never met the man, but from what I saw of his ELP collection he was certainly one "Lucky Man" and deserving of a fine "Fanfare" as he joins two of his musical heroes.

Heart felt thoughts to his family and friends on their loss.

On a more selfish note, I'd love to know what is to become of his masterful collection of memorabilia.
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

It's actually a fair question, I sometimes wonder who my things will go to since I have no kids.  And not just music, either.
