    Awwwww man.... he was a monster player. I have been wondering why Victor doesn't come up much around here for a while. I should really start that thread...

    Yes, it looks like it's official. He was ill most of his life, but managed to make beautiful music all the same.

    I'm glad that he got a cover feature on Bass Player mag, a little while back. One of the greats. RIP
