    Oh man, that's a shame.

    I know he had been suffering for a while, though.

    I was talking to one of my second cousins at a funeral a few weeks ago, and we were talking about him. He was actually friends with Elvin and jammed with him a couple times.

    Elvin definitely ranks up there as one of my favorite drummers. I can name a dozen tracks off the top of my head featuring some awe-inspiring drumming by him. What stands out most in my head is probably Coltrane's A Love Supreme, probably mostly because of its extreme historical relevance to music.
