Big, big loss.  When I was learning guitar he played regularly around the
corner from me in NYC for an extended period. Admission was cheap, so I
spent a lot of time there. He had many imitators, but nobody could match his
time, his touch, and his funkiness. Just the best there was at what he did. 
Can't be replaced.
