Oh my ..... Very sad day indeed! Rest in peace Richard. Your family will be in my thoughts. I still cannot believe this, was he sick with anything?

Peace to all who were close to this great musician.

This makes me very sad. He always seemed to be a very humble musician that knew how to play to serve the song. A true legend and icon.
