a sad loss but a miracle he lasted so long on the cocktail of drugs he consumed, made KR look like an amateur.

the Stratavarious album is one of my favourites of his

I watch both the farewell concert DVD's every few months, takes me right back to my teenage years and why I started with an EB3 and then a Fender 6.

Yeah, I get all sentimental too when I watch them..... literally the sound track to my youth. Such a great band.... epic in fact.
