Got to say I’m genuinely gutted. Iconic doesn’t even come close.
What a unique position to be in. Randomly walking through a mall or listening to the radio while driving, hearing a song you played drums for, and having an emotional experience completely unrelated to the music as a result. Hearing a drum hit that’s just slightly too loud or late/early, or remembering some emotion you were dealing with the day you laid down the track, etc..Damn, what a legacy this man leaves. Few people can claim such an intimate relationship with and rich contribution to an entire era of popular music. Legend.
