He will be missed. Such a great song writer, pick up the new album if you can.

I hadn't heard of Vic until all of this happened, but after finding out he was on Constellation (in my top 5 labels of all time) I checked out a video of him and was blown away. I am definitely a fan now, I only wish I could have found his music earlier. Rest in Peace.
