Wow, sad news. I wonder what happened, considering his relatively "young" age. 

R.I.P, and thanks for the great tunes.

From what I've read, it sounds like suicide.
Talk of him being estranged and then found by his ex g/f or wife

I fear that's what it was. 

He struggled with alcoholism, and believed he was the reason Tom Keifer put Cinderella on hiatus. I imagine things can quickly spiral out of control from there.

Oh man, this one really tugs at the heartstrings and makes me feel my age.

I remember Night Songs dropping the day I graduated from high school in June 1986.  It was a mainstay in my car's cassette deck all that summer and through 1987.  I saw them open for Bon Jovi in 1987 and I was a huge fan.

LaBar and Brittingham had such swag, and made the "guitar-flip" something all of us wanted to learn to do.  I dropped my Ibanez Roadstar on the sidewalk trying (unsuccessfully)  to replicate their trick.

Gosh... this news ruined my day.  :(
