So odd. I read about this news when Led Zeppelin "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" was playing on my sound system.
Well I wasn't the biggest fan, at times, but I always respected him. Wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
On a side note, I don't get the whole "Doom and Gloom" feeling the comments have. GIantbomb has been here before and it will be here after.
