Amidst the excitement of releasing the Electric Eye 30th Anniversary 3-CD Set , it is with saddened hearts that we must announce the passing of our good friend and bandmate - songwriter/vocalist/keyboardist Loyd Boldman - on the evening of April 22, 2014. The soaring voice, the driving keyboards, the penetrating lyrics, the eye for design that were so integral to the music and image of Prodigal were partials of a whole, with many other facets being developed and revealed during the Prodigal years and beyond. Loyd was a congenial man to cross paths with, a clever and engaging man to know casually, and a complex and fascinating man (with a heart as big as the planet) to have as a friend. And as his friends of 30+ years, we would like to honor Loyd by saying, "Thanks!" Thanks not just for the music, but thanks for being a gracious friend, a dedicated family man, a powerful worshipper, an honorable servant. Well done, Loydious - may you shine like neon forever!
