But Adrian did let me contribute some guest reviews to his website, and that was 19 years ago! That meant something to me, because I enjoyed reviewing records and I was a newbie to the WRC. Plus, I didn't have the resources to start a site of my own.
I deal with mental illness issues myself, and I noticed some of his character traits. He got depressed, he was sometimes very intense, and he posted drunk (like I have). So I have a lot of sympathy for the man.
About a year ago someone said here that he was barely staying alive and posting a lot on Mark Prindle's Facebook page. So this news doesn't surprise me.
May Adrian Denning find the peace in death that he couldn't find in life. R.I.P.
