Man, that's a big bummer to me. I was a big fan of his work. In fact, I listend to a bunch of the early PF stuff yesterday. RIP, Norman!

everyone hates on the stereo mix of 'piper at the gates of dawn', but the freaky panning and production sure beats the hell out of, say, a Hendrix record.

Yeah. Jeff Touzeau wrote it and did a great job on that whole article. It's the best thing I've seen in EQ in years.
