This is terrible news. We are losing too many wonderful people. He was a fantastic songwriter, with a lovely sense of humour which just bubbles up beautifully in his songs. He was a very clever and creative wordsmith - some of his songs still uncover secret plays on words after many performances. His songs will live on, but he will be badly missed.
