Good bye old friend. You were an inspiration for so many. Your contribution to music and in people’s lives cannot be defined in a few lines. You were more than a musician and a performer...you were a fighter... destined for greatness and great you were.

Thinking only of the good times we shared.
My career in music began with Overload.
We were at loggerheads at times but made some undeniably good music on the way. This is just one of those brilliant songs. Sharing this in your memory.
