Godspeed, Mr. Torpey.As huge fans of Mr. Big, we are saddened to hear about the passing of one of its founding members, Mr. Pat Torpey, who reportedly passed away on Wednesday due to complications from Parkinson's Disease. We were fortunate enough to see him play on their latest tour, where he was able to get onstage and continue to entertain audiences as he liked to do for over 30 years. Pat left a great legacy for his fans to enjoy, and we'll likely be doing a tribute to him and his work soon.

So raise a glass to the man, and give him a big horns up. And if you're interested in assisting research for Parkinson's, please feel free to do so here.

- Genghis is pretty bummed right now...
