THis one should not to be the day when Ben Daglish, one of your childhood heroes and prime musical inspirations, to pass suddenly. Not yet. Damn, it was way before time. Man I'm devastated and left speechless.

I am really sad to never met him and tell him in person that how much love I had for his music and how much he opened my eyes for creating music.

Thanks for all the inspiration. Ben, you'll be sorely missed.

This is a great loss for every C64 buff and everyone who knew Ben. I frequently listen to a lot of his SID tunes. He made some brilliant stuff. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. R.I.P. Ben.

Genuinely gutted about this one. *So* many good memories of demos/games containing his music.

@iAN CooG: Nice work on the Wiki entry.
