I'm really sad to hear this.
His name always jumped out from quality albums.

Same, here, David. I've seen his name on many albums.
Sorry to hear this.

My friend Caesar Suero had a label called Pizzaz records in Philly and hired Skip to co produce and write "Breakin Through" by Sybil Thomas.
He was a great guy.
I knew him briefly during the EWF era.
