    Forgive my lack of familiarity with the news source, but is this credible? I don't see another media outlet reporting this?

    It has been reported by several news sources since his death two days ago.

    So sad to see yet another great musician go.

    I was disappointed by the lack of news coverage it got, but I did hear it once on the radio yesterday.

    Indeed Russ. I always check news everyday and somehow didn't catch this.

    Pink Floyd was the best. It is always sad to lose one of the greats.

    I played DSOTM and WYWH on my reel-to-reel until the tape wore out.
