    :(...sorry to hear he has passed away Sox, and I missed your thread.

    I have two of his albums, the LOTR's and Watership Down, he is a very talented individual, if you are a fan of prog you should give his music a chance.

    If you have never read the novel by Richard Adams or seen the full length animated feature film you should read the book and watch the movie, I can see why Bo was inspired to write music for this amazing story.

    I have listened to samples of "Watership Down" after you put me onto it LG and I have to say it tops my wish list, it sounds fantastic IMO.
