I was very saddened indeed to hear of the passing of a modern magic legend, Del Ray. I had the rare opportunity of performing with Del on the same bill in Pittsburgh in 1987. He was kind enough afterwards to perform for me many of his close up effects. This is the moment that changed my way of thinking about magic forever, I got heavily into electronic magic.
Del was by far the most creative and innovative magician and truly a modern icon. He set the "bar" that is unreachable and is a testiment to the heights that our imagination can reach. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
