Arnold Robinson RIP

I have just heard the terrible news that long-time Nylons member Arnold Robinson has died. Beyond a posting on the Nylons Facebook wall I have no further details. I met Arnold several times over the years and his incredible bass voice was a wonder to hear. He should certainly be considered one of the founding members of contemporary a cappella and the Nylons were ground-breaking in their time and, for awhile, enjoyed the success of being a major touring act playing large venues around the world. He's singing now with the "choir in the sky" and they have never sounded better!
