"We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries," said a post on the Facebook page.

The Facebook page also said that there will be a memorial in Los Angeles at a later date, and that the family is requesting privacy now.

So much of his work was a soundtrack to my life. I'm at a loss.

I was fortunate enough to see him in 2010.  He put on a four hour set, with one intermission.  Probably one of the best shows that I have seen.

Edit: I've seen the future, brother…
