Many of you knew John, or have visited his forum ( http://www.johnlsayers.com/ ), or have surely heard of him, so I thought it pertinent to mention his passing here. I'm still trying to process this, as I just learned about it a few minutes ago. I knew him fairly well, but only on-online (not in person), as I was the administrator of his forum for many years, before starting this one. I was always impressed by his great knowledge and expertise in acoustics, but also by his willingness to share that with others.
The world has lost one of the greatest studio designers ever, and a generous man who freely shared his broad knowledge and great experience of acoustics, recording, and producing, on his forum and in private. I learned so much from him over the years, and greatly admired him as a studio designer.
it is a truly sad day for the music industry around the world.
There is a little more information here, published by his stepson:
