    Loved the original Renaissance lineup.

    Big influence on me especially this song where John plays some memorable piano.

    From Facebook.

    John Tout passed away this Friday, May 1st at 4.30pm from lung failure at The Royal Free Hospital, London, England.
    He was an amazing musician, highly contributing to the unique sound of the band from 1970 - 1980. He was the quiet (but funny) one in the band, always very caring towards the fans and good friend to Annie Haslam, Terence Sullivan, Jon Camp and Michael Dunford
    He will always be in our hearts and music! Please share your thoughts and photos of John.

    Yeah, saw this. Very sad. I saw Renaissance this past winter (without John) and Annie joked that they had to hire two keyboard players to fill his shoes. John was an outstanding musician. RIP
