    Wow. I had no idea he was that much older than me. Farewell to another creative soul.
    He did not know that the sword he'd hold, would turn his priceless empire into fool's gold...

    I really dislike that Atlantide album, I have to say. But I'm sure he was a nice person nonetheless.

    Thanks for sharing. I was only aware of him as a co-producer on a few Ange albums from the 80s, but that was obviously a very small part of the picture. RIP.

    I don't know man. A song like Soleil Noir really scratches my epic/symphonic/psychedelic itch, despite the extravagant style and the clear Yes influence.
    The other one I know is Visitors, which is quite good, despite the kitsch element. But I have managed to get my filthy hand on some other of his projects and intend to come back with some opinion on them.

    I am listening to the Horrific Child album, which is part of the Nurse With Wound list. I don't understand anything from it. After 3 listens the verdict seems to be that this is complete nonsense. It's impossible even to describe.

    One of the weirdest albums that ever reached my attention.
