Well I'm not sure if this thread belongs here since it deals with the DDR culture but then again the subject matter is pretty serious.
According to DDR freak, legendary benami artist Captain Jack had passed away due to a stroke on October 21, 2005. The fourm where users can post their comments can be found here.
Captain Jack is well respected in the benami world for creating such catchy hits as "Captain Jack", "Dream a Dream", "Only You" and doing a remix of "In the Navy." I would listen to his music even when I wasn't playing as I loved his songs so much. When I first read the news I gasped in shock.
This is truly a tragic even in itself. DDR will never be the same without him.
