God damn it. 

At least his royalties will provide for them.

A HUGE loss for progressive rock. I'm certain the band will now dedicate the new album to him. And no doubt it will be great. Michael and Annie recently said the new album could possibly be the best the band has ever produced, and with Michael's brilliant, memorable and timeless writing, I also have no doubt that this may be the case. R.I.P.  Michael. Indeed this is a very sad time for progressive rock fans.

A very sad day. A great loss to the world of great music.

Fortunately I saw Renaissance 2 years ago.
 
Can't find his age, any information would be appreciated

Very very sad

A sad loss indeed. The samples from the new album I have listened to indicate that he may have had something more to give us.
 
RIP.

Very sad news when I learned of it a couple days ago.  It puts the performance of Renaissance at Nearfest I saw just a few short months ago into new perspective.  It was the first time I'd seen them.  I suspect his work will be listened to for many years to come.  He left a great legacy.

If that was a reply to my request, could you have at least bothered to provide the information of his age that he passed away while writing about finding anything on google
 
Sounds like the common sense thing to do, as I would not have asked such a question without googling first

^ Pardon me for my coldheartedness.

He was 68, which means he was born in ... 1944 unless he did not have a B-day this year.
