I just found out via drummer Alex Alexander that songwriter Rob Morsberger has passed away. In the fall of 2011 he was diagnosed with brain cancer (Stage 4 Gioblastoma). But, instead of retreating and feeling sorry for himself, he decided to concentrate on his own songwriting, recording and performing (when well enough). He made quite a name for himself as a classically trained composer. As a sideman/arranger, his credits include Patti Smith, the Grammy-winning Boardwalk Empire soundtrack album, My Morning Jacket, Crash Test Dummies, Marshall Crenshaw, Willie Nile, Jules Shear, Loudon Wainwright III, and more.

In March of 2012 Rob visited WBJB-FM, 90.5 The Night, Brookdale Public Radio and chatted with Rich Robinson.
