^ I'm going to start tonight. Going to do his recent solo album as well shortly, which easily could have been a magma track with some minor alterations.

I had heard a few? years ago that he was dealing with health issues. I'm such a huge ONE SHOT fan and I believe that was where I first heard him.

Yeah, he had cancer, and I believe in the end that is what he succumbed too. Ouch

That's a bummer. I know he missed the last tour I saw them on because of a cancer diagnosis. Not sure what type.

I'll never forget the first time I saw the section of Theusz Haamtahk were he plays the little jazzy melody duet with Stella. One of my favorite musical moments of all time.

Man, that sucks. I tried to get into Magms but found it boring, but since that dude has passed, I would think he told want me to try Magma again. May he Rest In Peace ☮️ 🪦.
