The video posted is pretty incredible, apparently featuring excerpts from the first LOTGA recording sessions.

Rest In Peace, Geoff.

For anyone who wants to donate to chip in, this was posted at the event:

It was interesting to read Matt Good's thoughts about Geoff. Happy to see he spoke so highly of him.

It is absolutly wild how time flys by. Almost 20 years since MGB started and three years since Geoff left us. RIP man. You are remembered.
