Default Anyone know Dr. Matt?

I don't remember if he's a member here, but I'm sure a few people might recognize him from JREF...

Not good news, I'm afraid:

I didn't know him from JREF, but I recognize his name from Usenet. He used to post regularly in several groups in the rec.music.classical hierarchy. :ffsad:

FX, I actually have to thank you this time. I forgot I had never purchased Dr. Matt's last musical contribution, "Double Cluster and Space Sciences." That has now been rectified.

"Sages of Chelm" was my personal favorite. Even though his music was not my preferred style, I will still occasionally listen to it.

Oh no, how did I miss this thread back then? I really liked that guy. We used to email about weird stuff back in the day, but we just sort of fell off and lost touch. I didn't even know.
