Very, very sad news today - Voivod's guitarist, Denis "Piggy" D'Amour passed away after fighting colon cancer. His playing has influenced me more than any other guitar player has. His style was unique and visionary - there's no comparison to what he had done for advancing progressive metal to new heights, and his ideas defied categorization. I hope that he's remembered as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. I will miss listening to his new ideas, and continue to listen in amazement at what he had accomplished. My condolences go out to his family, friends and band-mates. Rest in peace, Denis - you will be missed.
