  1. I am so sorry to see this. He was one-of-a-kind! He was a friend and my piano-tuner. One of the most interesting musicians I have ever played with…

  2. Kathleen Brockway says:

    I am so very sorry Ed has passed. We were very close when we were younger. I have tried to keep in touch over the years, but haven’t talked to him since mid-winter. He always had something to say to make me laugh, and something profound to say to make me think. I loved the days in the ’70s of being with whatever band he played in. Rest well, Ed – your struggle is done.

  3. Daniel Olsen says:

    I feel lucky to have seen him play a few times many years ago. Universal Intelligence was my first live show and having the band visit your table at your first show was was a pretty rock and roll moment for me. He was the most unique and interesting person I had ever met at the time. Ed and his family are in my thoughts.
