Already posted this dreadful news in the RIP thread, but I think this great musician, not to mention a much liked and respected member of Progarchives, deserves a thread all of his own: http://mrrmusic.com/colin-tench-leaves-us-with-a-minor-masterpiece/. A great loss to us all.

Almost an hour ago I received the horrid news that Colin passed away a couple of days ago.
I am still in sock, and I simply cannot believe it!
We were speaking a few days ago, and we were talking about his New Year's Eve plans...

Here is a short piece I wrote on my blog just now.
http://gfreedomathina.blogspot.gr/2017/12/colin-tench-has-passed-away-rip.html

R.I.P Colin, we will remember and treasure you for always...
If anybody wants please visit: http://www.gfreedomathina.blogspot.com/

This is my Blog mostly about Rock music, but also a few other things as well.

You are most welcome!

Thank you. :)

Extremely sad news. Colin was a nice man, and a great musician.

RIP.

Rest in peace Colin. I was never that big on your music but I loved your friendship.

This is really sad news.  I don't know that I really ever talked to Colin, but I knew that he was a PA member and that he had friends here amongst us.  RIP

I'm speachless. We were connected on Linkedin. Few months ago I shared his "minor masterpiece" promo to some of my Linkedin connections and he popped in the discussion introducing himself to my Italian pen friends.
He sent me the first Corvus Stone for review as soon as it was released and saying that I'm sad is too few.

Not the way I expected to start the new year.
What a loss of talent, and of humanity.

RIP Colin.

I never got around to listening to his music but it's so sad.  I know what a favourite he is around here.  Much sympathy to all who knew him

Unfortunately I was unaware of his music and his respected status here in PA.  What was his PA profile name/handle in PA?

Regardless, RIP Colin.

Quite a shock. I had no idea he was 63 to be honest and assumed he was 30ish at the most. 
RIP Colin . Your music will live on.
