Chuck: "I always had a sense of appreciation for the quest he seemed to be on, searching for deeper meanings in life and not settling on what we’re told or taking everything at face value, but looking for the meaning behind things. That was something I think we shared. I felt a kinship in that regard. Call it spiritual dimension of life, call it what you will, but he definitely was a seeker, and I was very respectful of that. I could hear in his music.
"I point to a piece like Sky Piece. The feeling that I get hearing that music, it just opens vistas in my mind or beyond my mind. When you hear some of the different places he went with the sounds and sometimes just the complete abandonment, the joy, the freedom in his music, all of those things combined.... But the spiritual aspect, it’s hard to put a finger on it."
