Captain Jack gone?

Captain Jack, really only known in the US for being part of Konami's famous Dance Dance Revolution and other Bemani video games, died last week in Berlin from complications of a stroke and resulting coma.

The only people who would really know (or care) who he was in the US were fellow DDR players (like myself) who would play his songs--he was one of the first to have the dreaded 9-footer songs (Captain Jack--which I almost beat once, and then never tried again).

Here's the link to the story and here's a link about him in German (he was more well known in Europe and Asia anyway).

I'll probably play a couple games of DDR in his memory later on this weekend.
