An over-accomplished perfectionist who traveled and worked at a pace that led to extreme stress.
When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and do what he loved most ̵1; music.
He really fought with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness.
He could not go on anymore.
He wanted to find peace.

The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you,
Also your family
