    Attention, Poisoned Youth! Could this be the sig-worthy quote you've been in search of?

    Damn, I was just about to post that. An extraordinary cover, the harmony vocals and piano are going to haunt me for a long time.

    Very well done and quite moving as well. Still can't believe he's gone.

    Wow, that was amazing. Hearing the song in a different format like this is allowing me to focus more on the lyrics whereas with Rush I'm listening to all the instrumentation foremost. These are just moving lyrics. Pratt hit a home run with this one.

    Fantastic, and it's always been a favourite of mine. And as time marches on, it becomes more and more touching.

    That tribute by the US Army Band is amazing, I say as tears run down my face. Don't know if and or when I'm ever going to get over this.

    That's what I was thinking and it makes sense - Neil's passing is major news as Rush was a major concern. The others in the OT section... not so much. I don't think anyone else is put out by it.

    A famous person, who has been in the spotlight for 40 years dies. Its a bit different from someone who was not super well known (not a household name in say, musical circles) passing away. Neils death was also news because it was such a shock (I'm still not over it) If ever there was "music news" Neils Passing was it. I cant comment on many of the RIP's here because I was not very familiar with many of the individuals. I hope that is not being insensitive, it is not intended to be so, Just not every musician is somebodies hero...

    There's an underlying narrative that you may not be aware of...A desire to see primarily Jazz related musicians viewed as Prog-Rockers and given the same amount of attention on this site. Giving them what could be perceived as secondary status in RIP threads undercuts that goal, and is viewed as a setback to the agenda.
