    Default RIP: ravingandrooling

    I've just been informed by MOB that Jeff, AKA ravingandrooling has succumbed to Brain Cancer.

    My sincere condolences to his family.

    Shine on, brother.

    T.

    P.S. I've been made aware that there's a GoFundMe link in order to raise funds to cover some expenses of Jeff's family:

    Jeff was a great contributor to the whole trading community.
    He did a lot of fantastic recordings and was always happy to share them and make other people discover some less-known bands he was into. Recently he converted me to The Aristocrats (he saw them 5 times this year).

    We were "internet friends" since several years and I had the privilege to remaster some of his rough recordings at his requests.
    He was a great guy, very generous. I will miss him.......

    Rest in peace my friend

    He was an absolute gent on the few occasions that we had communications.

    Definitely a linchpin of Yeeshkul and the wider PF community.

    I was one of those who discovered more music through Jeff's uploads. RIP.

    A very sad day as my good friend Jeff Post lost his battle with cancer. I sure wish he could have at least heard the first Gilmour show as I've been preparing a copy for him. Jeff was a great contributor to our community as both a taper and seeder. He always wore his beret to shows which had two mics popping out of the front and a cable running down the back and into his shirt. He had a great smile and was extremely generous. He was a good friend and I'm glad that we had a great time when he stayed with us for the Steven Wilson shows last June. I'm thankful that the end came pretty quickly for him.

    He seemed to fear one thing more than death and that was being forgotten. I, for one, will never let that happen and neither should any of us ever forget our good friend Posty.

    :'(

    I love this picture I took of Jeff at the Steven Wilson show this past June. This is him "at work," recording the show for the rest of us.

    No words.
    I know "ravingandrooling" I think since 2006, always kind person, nice and always ready to help in every little problem, generous.

    My sincere condolences to his family.

    Awww, a sad day. Thanks for sharing the photo Ron. It's nice to finally associate a face with the name. It's a fitting tribute that he's busy at work.
