I will be very blunt in saying that I was totally shocked upon hearing the news of guitarist/ keyboardist Eugene Orlando's passing today. (Apparently he passed away at home November 25) It's the buzz of the local social network and I found out when I logged on. Eugene was known to many as the guitarist and keyboardist for the bands "That's Chester" and "Rumours" to which he played in well over 14 years combined. He was in his 50's. Eugene recently took part in the live production play of "Tommy" which was held at the Machine Shop not even two or three weeks ago. He and his band That's Chester provided the music for the show to rave reviews. Sadly, this success was short lived. Understandably, the band, family and friends and even those who knew him casually are in total shock. At this time, no funeral arrangements are known but I will keep you posted when I hear about them.
Eugene and I talked only a few days ago and he was in good spirits and mentioned how much fun he had doing the Tommy show. It's hard to believe he's gone.
