RIP Piotr Grudzinski

Terrible news posted on Riverside’s Facebook Page.

In our deepest pain and disbelief we would like to inform you that our dearest friend and brother Piotr Grudzinski has passed away this morning. We kindly ask you to respect the privacy of his family and friends.

Sad and shocking. Riverside are one of the best contemporary bands in progressive rock to emerge in recent years. One of the highlights of last years’ Ramblin Man festival, and their album “Love, Fear and The Time Machine” was my album of the year for 2014. Piotr Grudzinski distinctive less-is-more style was a key part of their sound, with more than a hint of Rush’s Alex Lifeson about his playing

A terrible, tragic loss.

    I’d been listening through their back catalogue for the first time over the last week when I read about this awful news. Piotr has left a great legacy behind (Out Of Myself is my own favourite) and I’m sure he’ll be remembered as one of the great “feel” players. I wish I had got the chance to see this band live. Very sad day for music.
