    I knew Rex only on these forums, first CS and now SBAF. I remember a post of mine in CS which (in hindsight) was a little pretentious. His reply completely cracked me up and left me a little chastened as well. That was a typical CS reply but revealed his friendly nature. RIP, buddy.

    Damn, it's sad enough on a music forum when we loose people in their 80s... but 29? Damn, that's so young that I can barely remember being 29 :(

    Sympathy and condolences to family, friends, all you guys who knew him for a long time. My acquaintance was much more recent, but still, I'm shocked and sad.

    I hardly know Rex. Yet it tears me to see part of this family going off so soon.

    You will be missed David. You fought hard, and rest well now. Hope the family stays strong and my condolences.

    Gone far too soon. All respect to his memory and condolences to his loved ones. I'm glad that this hobby brought him joy in his time here. Rest in peace.

    It sounds like he had love, friends, family, and music-a good life, though much too short. He'll be missed.

    RIP @Rex Aeterna / David. He was one of the earliest guys at Changstar, essentially one of the founders. At one point, he was more prolific with posts than me! The nutty stuff about aliens, the honest to goodness stuff about friendships, and his bargain-basement approach to fantastic sound (big woofers, horns, pro amps) will be missed. I just caught wind of this and I am in absolute shock. I knew he had been dealing with health issues, but this I did not expect. This is a huge loss to the community and me personally.

    @BillWojo: thanks for letting us know.

    Man, that's sad to hear. My condolences. I really loved him for his enthusiasm for big speakers with big woofers; not the crap that gets sold today. For someone who started lurking on Changstar about a year after it was founded, he seemed to have always been a part of this community.

    R.I.P. David

    This song is for David/Rex. He had an uncanny love for Elelctro/Dance/House and weird music I am only now starting to appreciate. (I discovered Grimes way too late.)

    May you rave in the afterlife David.

    He could make you laugh at the silliest things. His sense of humour...

    Another reminder to all of us how precious time is. Choose wisely how you spend it. RIP.

    You're watching me slowly slip away
    Like the passing light of day
    Watching our colors turning grey
    Like the passing light of day

    [Verse 3]
    I need something new
    If I could start anew
    Would it be the same?
    I need something new

    To feel whole again
    (If I only knew)
    I will see this through
    I need something new
    Take me home again
    (If I only knew)

    [Bridge 3]
    All those people who worried us
    All those things that were hurting us
    None of that can reach me now
    None of that can reach me now

    All the darkness we thought about
    All those things that we fought about
    None of that can touch me now
    None of that can touch me now

    Cos that matters is here today
    All the thoughts that I think today
    Every word that we say today
    Every second alive today


    [Chorus 4]
    We're all burning out, fading away
    Like the passing light of day
    We are watching the colors turning grey
    In the passing light of day
    We may wish we could run
    Just walk away
    From this passing light of day
    But at some point we needed to stop
    And say
    It's ok
    It's ok

    [Outro]
    "My love, don't be afraid"
    I hear you say
    "I'll be here for you all the way"
    And I just wish that I could smile and say:
    'Baby, hey
    I'm in too much pain To feel afraid
    My lover
    My best friend"

    Lover
    Best friend

    I'm watching it slowly slip away
    Like the passing light of day
    Watching the colors turning gray
    In the passing light of day
    And although I wish
    That I could stay
    It somehow strangely feels ok
    It is what it is
    I'll find my way

    Through this passing light...
