This is the worst thing that's happened since... forever. I'm at a loss for words, can't stop thinking about this.

That was shocking and tragic.

But I'll always remember this man when I listen to "All A Man Can Do." RIP.

What?! That's so sad and shocking! I really liked their new album, and I thought his keyboard work was wonderful and captivating. RIP

Metal-archives says that he was 29 or so years old. I've never heard of him or his band, but he seemed like an impressive dude, from what I've read around. This is a significant loss.
