  • thats so sad ive heard lots of his music on climbing videos and the like and loved it, never realised he'd died so young :( wonder if the money for his albums supports cancer research?
  • Tongues of Kali is my favourite. Luckily I was fortunate enough to see him at Sidmouth yearssss back. Still one of the best live shows I've ever seen. Sad loss, RIP.
  • love this guy!
