I received the remastered G1 score on the red and blue vinyl and have been enjoying it so much. He put that classic touch of whimsy and wonder in that makes every track. Truly a great loss. :(

My favorite Hasbro-based cartoons, AND my all-time favorite Saturday morning cartoon were all scored by this fellow? Not that surprising since they were all Marvel Productions...but something that never clicked until the announcement of his passing. The score to 60% of my childhood just went silent.

May he rest in peace, and may we keep hearing all his work forever, somehow.
