Sad to read that be has succumbed to cancer. 

Those 8 man KC shows of late are some of the best of their repertoire. RIP

Yeah ... in Seattle a few years ago ... the whole show was excellent!

A really sad bit of news, he was a fantastic drummer and the 3 drummer KC show I saw with him was mind-blowing.. RIP Bill :(

Sad indeed.  I saw Crimson in 2017, phase 2 Fall tour in the USA, unfortunately Bill did not make the 2nd part of the tour.  I was disappointed and wish I could have seen him, but regardless excellent musician and drummer!

Watched many of the videos with him in the Crim under drums or keyboards.

RIP Bill

One more impressive musician gone very, very early

Cancer again : How come we're now in 2020s and still must read those news !!

The day to day witnessing by Guy Tenenbaum cf youtube channel "Cancer Therapy" is the closest to hope for cancer survival I know of.
