I saw them back in the day, recall them being true musicians, I could see the classical training in their playing. They had far more great material than just Whiter Shad of Pale, many good memories tied to their music. RIP
Truly a sad loss and part of the pioneers of progressive/psychedelic/symphonic rock. Great classic rock piano/organ player singer composer. As in their second and my favorite release may his spirit and music Shine on Brightly.
