I'm a bit late discovering this.

He was so full of life. I saw him at a few Back in Time events.

Hard to believe another C64 legend is gone and so young too. :(

It really hit me badly, I wrote an official obituary for C64 Audio and today I submitted a tribute article to Retro Gamer.

I loved Ben's music - Kettle, Trap, Krakout and of course The Last Ninja. That hidden demo in Trap blew my mind.

And then I got to meet Ben - this crazy, modest, witty, ball of energy that lit up the Back in Time events. I got his autograph and became a friend. Even when he called me a stalker :)

The fact I won't get to see him perform again and spend time laughing with him is so sad.

Rest in peace, Ben.
