We've received the very unexpected and devastating news that Jez Rowden has passed away.

Jez was an editor and reviewer for DPRP for several years until he started his own website, The Progressive Aspect. Many will know him in our world of prog. But most of all, Jez was a friendly and lovable man, who never hesitated to help out, for example by digging up info from archives. A great guy in many ways. He will be sorely missed by many, and we wish his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched the strength to get a grip on this loss.
