I'm surprised P4K missed this. I don't recall hearing anything about it. Regardless, bummer....

This must be the reason their tour was cancelled. This is sad news indeed.

Also, I think Matt and Feather are going to need a hug after reading this.

Some of my greatest Coachella memories were during the orb. Hung out with a lot of boardies during their set.

I am so sad. I am so thankful I was able to experience the Orb at Coachella. He will be missed.

This isn't a guy that played with them at Coachella... he just collaborated with them in the 90s on Orblivion and Cydonia. And as far as I know he hasn't played with The Orb in a long time...

I don't think this has anything at all do with the whole canceled tour thing.

I'm so glad I was privileged enough to see him at Coachella. RIP

'Cakes is correct. He was in the group from the mid 90s through the turn of the century. Currently Alex Patterson and Thomas Fehlmann are the guys running the show so the cancelled tour dates should be rescheduled.

Even so, horrible news. And at 44!? Too soon.

Yeah guys, this guy worked with Orb in the late 90's and left shortly after....he wasn't with them at Coachella or any of their latest performances....still sad though. Though I prefer the early Orb work, before Andy had anything to do with them.

True that. Many of my adventures during the 90s were soundtracked by the ORB, this is very sad news indeed :(

The reasons behind the canceled tour were given as personal, so there is a possibility that Alex did not want to be on the road while his friend was suffering from a life-threatening illness.

My first one, like pancakes, is Ultraworld, but I love Orblivion so much. It's horrible when cool people die so young.

Sad news. Since I saw them in the early 90's and a tiny bit of their Coachella performance, chances are I never saw him live anyway.

The article said he stopped working with them in '99.

Short illness? Why can't they just be straight and tell us what he died from?

44, 2 kids . . . it's so sad.
