He did a lot of rock orchestration. One of my faves is Queensryche's "Roads to Madness".

A sad loss indeed.

Kamen was incredibly prolific and appreared on more albums and film scores than just about anybody in existence.

It's been a really BAD year for the entertainment industry, huh?

To me, he made Metallica what it is and proved that they're not just mindless metal heads (before St. Anger :P)

I didn't know he was diagnosed with MS six years ago.

This has been such a bad year for losing great creative minds.
