    I saw him at the Asbury Park Convention Hall in the 1960s touring behind the Take Five album. Great show! I play drums and his drummer, Joe Morello, was one of my favs.

    A true giant. At 91, I shouldn't be shocked. But I'm shocked.

    I had a hard time all day trying to figure out what to put as a tribute to him. I really have no words.

    He was a genius. A giant. And we were blessed to have been able to witness and enjoy his true musical greatness.

    RIP sir.
