    Man, that stinks. I have a couple of his CDs. I used to play one all the time way back when. I can't find an obit, but I'm guessing it was cancer, since he was diagnosed with that a while back. R.I.P.

    Man that stinks, enjoyed his work on Letterman.

    One of my lasting memories of Mr. Bullock was when Don Rickles comes on the show (not 2008 PC but so be it, probably in the late 80s) and says "Hiram?" what kind of mother names her son "Hiram?" "Oh your a black man, now I understand [or something to that effect]" Hilarious.

    First place I saw this dude's name: Keyboards and guitars for Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero" from the "Footloose" soundtrack. Then I got into jazz, especially funky stuff from the 60s and 70s (Bob James, in particular). Dude was everywhere.

    RIP, and keep grooving.
