I'm very sorry to hear about Dave's passing.
We traded music a number of times over the years and on each of those occasions, he went above and beyond by sending me other artists from his collection that he thought I might like.
Occasionally, if I asked a question on the forum about a band or artist that I had a growing curiosity about, I would get a private message from Dave, saying, hold off, I'm going to send you an album or two by these guys.
I never met him in person, but I think it would have been a pleasure if I did. He was clearly a music fanatic but on top of that, he seemed like a thoughtful person.
