One of my favourite musicians, Pat Torpey, drummer with Mr Big, has died following a few years suffering with Parkinsons.

I first saw him play at The Marquee in 1992 and was blown away by his talent. Last time was in November - on this latest tour he's been doing backing vocals and percussion as he could no longer play the drums.

Just saw this. I had no idea he was ill. I know how much you admire the band.
He was a great drummer. One of the drummers I could watch for ages and never become bored.
RIP sir.

~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~
