I didn't know the man personally, but it seemed that everything of his that I saw, read or heard was worthwhile, and he seems to have touched a number of people profoundly in his (too) short time on the planet.

Richard was a member of the KC forum, and posted about his live performances with Jordan Rudess in early 2011. A pic from that show here:



RIP, Richard, and thanks for sharing your gifts.

Notification of his passing on the website he shared with his wife, Caroline Meyers, for those that knew him... my condolences.

Sorry to hear. I remember him from this forum and didn't even know of his playing with Rudess. My condolences to his friends and family.

Sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family. What was his nick here on KC?


Instrumentation is meaningless - a song either stands on its own merit, or it requires bells and whistles to cover its lack of adequacy, much less quality. - kanker

He programed the huge modular synth for Dream Theater's "Tribute to Pink Floyd" concert(s). There's a video on youtube showing Jordan Ruddess playing the thing in the London O2 Arena, programmed by the late composer. RIP, my condolences to his family

Wow...really sorry to hear this. He was a good man, and his educational videos are excellent.

Bit of a shocker, especially for those here in Berkeley at Buchla Labs (not my employer but I have a couple of friends there). My condolences to friends and family. He left us way too soon.

I corresponded with Richard a few times - very nice and humble guy. Sorry to see him go before his time.

I caught this on the dotcom forum. Man, shows you have to live life every day as if it were your last. I didn't know this man but it seems he did. RIP.
