He will be missed, and not just because of the music he helped bring into the world. I met Bruce in Mexico City, where we were both doing seminars. I just assumed he would be an "I'm Bruce Swedien, don't bother me" person but he was the exact opposite. He spent a lot of time with the people, was totally accessible, signed a lot of autographs, and used his big personality to project his love of music and engineering. I kept in touch sporadically over the years and found that wasn't just a one-off...it's who he was, always willing to mentor and share what he knew.
