    He was always my idol and I vainly hoped I would get to see him in person some time. Guess that won't happen too soon...

    Damn it, this was the worst for me.

    Now is the time for me to check into some ELP. I've never listened to any of their albums before.

    There are rumors that this was a suicide by gunshot. Of course it's too soon to know. But if it's true I think it was because Keith knew he had some kind of cancer that doctors told him was terminal and he decided to end it quickly, rather than endure a painful and prolonged death. He had a very successful life...

    Again, the facts aren't out yet. Let's wait and see.
