C.L. and ALS disease battle being over
A very fine man C.L. has tragically passed away and I am missing the smile and quick intelligence and the patient and humorous retort and answers to enquiring students that he brought to my attention. I played for him on a couple of occasions as he was dealing with the later stages of ALS and there was no possible greater audience to play for in this world. Full out passion—I'll never forget the look of passion and gratitude mixed with a trace of despair he gave me. It will be on my mind and memory as a accessible and common event regarding Colin. A truly great man: with a stunning background in many sciences namely Physics and of course music and the sensibilities of musical finesse. He was an advanced thinker in the computer world of sound recording as well. Colin will be missed but NOT forgotten.
