    holy shit... Steve Albini was a legend. I didn't always agree with his perspectives and philosophies regarding production, but I always respected his opinions, and considered everything he had to say to be at the very least educational. He was a unique pioneer, and he was never afraid to go against the grain. Albini was always the opposite of "selling out," and is one of the clearest examples of a musical creator who stuck to his principles and ideas and didn't compromise them. Everyone in the music production world revered him (or is an idiot).

    This is a sad day.

    Truly a legend. Respect to him for forging his own path and encouraging others to do the same.

    Just... he was maybe THE most influential engineer in rock music, ever, full stop.

    Obviously everyone will mention his work on In Utero (rightly so), but just looking at all the bands he crossed paths with over the years is pretty astounding. The records he did with Low are some of my absolute favorites.

    Well said. I caught an interview with him recently and was pleasantly surprised to learn he was actually more flexible in his thinking on production. He had good things to say about Butch Vig, for example. Seems he did really stick to his philosophy but that he also didn't want or expect everyone else to fall in line and do the exact same thing.

    Also, I mean dude is forever a fucking legend.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Roger Corman yet. The king of the B movies who launched the careers of many actors and filmmakers passed Thursday at 98!

    Richard M Sherman, the composer who wrote the music for a bunch of Disney properties (including Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book).

    I'm sure Ozzy is upset... apparently that was his pre-show warmup; he "needed his Poppins" before he could go on stage.

    RIP Wampler. https://www.thewrap.com/scott-wample...kingcast-dies/

    He was a great follow when Twitter was halfway good. And of course he was one of us.

    He was one of the funniest people on that platform. His podcasts were great as well. He is really going to be missed.

    I met him at the Vegas NIN show in ‘22 and he was kind and excited about getting to go backstage. He was hoping to see the “Fashion” cover played live and I really wanted to see “And All That Could Have Been.”

    I reached out after to say we both got our wishes and it was nice to meet him and he responded in kind.

    He was funny too. I was a KINGCAST fan and looked forward to his Hellraiser podcast. This is very sad. I know he was having a rough time. Goddammit.

    I didn't know that he was sick. I always enjoyed his commentaries.
