Yeah, that definitely sucks. I'm kicking myself for so many passed-up opportunities to see them perform.

What I'm really annoyed at is that I'm now one of those people who recognises how awesome and important BB are now that one of them is dead. I knew License to Ill before, but that was about as far as I went into their catalogue. They don't have a bad album!

It really sucks, he was 47. 2012 seems like the year all the good musicians die.
