One of the real characters around these pages.

Will be genuinely and sadly missed.

I can't get over the fact he was posting only a day before he passed. It just shows how precious life is, and how suddenly it can be taken away. Very, very, sad.

This is sad and shocking news, especially as I had taken his absence to mean that he had been banned for some reason.

RIP, Hairball.

I hope his family and friends get to see this thread and all the appreciation for his contributions.

From MisterDDD's link, there is a memorial and you can buy a tree.

Oh no. This is so sad to hear.

Yeah, there probably aren't any poster here that could drive me more nuts, or I could have not disagreed more with in regard to almost anything - and for years we did best to ignore each other's posts - but I feel really down now. He like belonged to the constitution of this site. Actually when he stopped posting it felt odd because I, like I guess everyone, was so used to his daily posts. Felt like something was missing. And damn, he not just missed the new album he had counted so long, but also the Macca track (and in a way he was always right with his annoying 'hit the wall' comments). Does not sound fare.

I only knew him via his posts here. As a person - outside the moniker and presence here - he surely was something much more and else. Social media just sometimes makes communication so difficult. I just checked his site and he was a great artist. I like his works.

RIP Hairball

That is a quality tribute and you have showed some real class, Doxa. I cannot say that I always enjoyed your sparring but sometimes it was entertaining.

Hairball will certainly be missed on this board. RIP.

RIP Hairball.
I sparred with Hairball a few times when I disagreed with his comments about the Stones, but I also saw a wealth of good information on his posts. I noticed
his absence here and am sorry to learn of his death. My condolences to his family.

We exchanged a few memories about the Tattoo You album and tour when we, being the same age, both became fans, and amazingly enough also about a show in 2007 in Nijmegen (the one with the huge thunderstorm), which he apparently attended as well.

Sad news indeed, he's been here for ages!

So many of us have been here for ages ... I consider it a sort of family. Weird concept isn't it? Nevertheless this shared passion for the Stones is so strong that it humanizes electronic communications!

I'm sad to hear of Eric's passing. It's a loss, and my condolences to his family and friends. I did not know him outside the forum but I enjoyed his posts and I was very much looking forward to reading his opinions on the new album. I know he was as excited as I was.

Condolences to his friends and family.

Sad to read of the passing of a well-known byline around here. If the loss of life wasn't tragic enough, there's a part of me that finds it ironically unfair that a long-time Stones fan would die just prior to the long-anticipated release of their new album.

I know--it's only rock n' roll...

This is a real shame. I always enjoyed Eric's insights, and am glad the Stones are doing a "mini-tour" in his honor.

Wow so sad to hear this! I enjoyed his posts and the exchange between him and so many on here. Just a year younger than me. Life is short and precious! Rest in peace and prayers for his family and friends!

Hopefully Hairball can listen to the new 'Hackney Diamonds' album where he now is.

Quote from Edgar Froese (1944-2015), founder of the band Tangerine Dream: "There's no death. Only a change of the cosmic address".

This should be a ‘sticky’

Whilst we’re all excited about the new album, one of our most prolific contributors has passed. This is just my opinion.
