R.I.P.  T LAVITZ 1956-2010

I am very saddened by the news of T Lavitz passing.
T was one of my keyboard heroes while I was growing up.
I was very fortunate to have had the chance to study privately
with him in 1985, and become his friend over the years.
He was a very cool guy, and a great player.
My favorite T Lavitz musical moment is on the song
"I'm Freaking Out" on Dregs Of The Earth,
awesome keyboard playing. Rest in peace T.
