A huge loss for me. I grew up listening to his wonderfully produced works with The Fixx, Howard Jones, Eight Seconds, Robert Palmer and Rush. I always loved the soundtrack he composed for the 80's cult teen flick Better Off Dead.

R.I.P. Good Sir...

Wherever I May Roam
Presto and Roll the Bones haven't exactly aged well.

At least there an album's worth of good songs on Presto (7 or 8, depending on my mood)...

Still, sorry to hear about Hine's death. It comes for us all!
