Never followed the band, but heard of course a few of their 'top fortyish' hits.

But I still am saddened by the loss of another 'player' who was good enough to be recognized by many in this world.

It also reminds me that I am 57. Far too close to his age to not be a bit disturbed by his 'sudden passing' without giving it some thought.

Rest in peace, Bob.
