In Memoriam: Toz Bourne

I learned from Doug Woods that long-time Patron and supporter of the site Toz Bourne passed away, after a protracted illness. From his profile page here on discchord you can see his participation in the community has been lengthy and profound. His first comment on the site was in the April Fools post for 2014. Toz's music has been featured here many times in the past, and he was among the people who helped me with the original beta testing for the site.

We've exchanged a lot of emails over the years, and I'm stunned to learn of his passing. Toz will be missed by many in the community. He never brought any drama, just good vibes to all.

His last album, produced entirely on iOS, was a fun one I dubbed Jazz Punk.
