Dang this is a sad one. He will be forever remembered for his contributions to sound engineering as a whole but more specifically for me what he contributed to MJ's art.

The passing of Bruce Swedien truly is a great loss - first and foremost for his loving family, for music lovers everywhere and those of us in MJfam, who appreciate so much his loyal and constant presence on ALL of Michael's major projects, to which he contributed so greatly.

May God rest his soul and comfort his loved ones and all those who must miss him so terribly. I'm sure they are all keeping him in their hearts through the wonderful memories of the time shared together.
