Vic was an true original and one of the few lyricists I'd put in Daniel's league. He was also one of the strongest, sweetest human beings I've ever met.  We lost a great one today.

Him and Dean Martin are having a highball...
Sad news, Jeff. An original talented singer/songwriter.

I will listen to "Sponge" tonight and light a candle for his journey...
