aquí os copio la carta de JSS sobre esto escrita hace pocos minutos:
January 30, 1964 - July 21, 2009
It is with deep regret & remorse I, along with fellow members of
Talisman, am announcing our brother, long time colleague & overall
greatest musician we've ever played with, Marcel Jacob, is no longer
with us as of today, Tue July 21, 2009. Marcel took his own life after
many years of personal & health issues he was battling.
We were mere days from starting what would have been our 8th Talisman
studio album together, celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the band.
I spoke with him just yesterday about finalizing the details that would
get us started only to get the news this afternoon that my friend
merely gave up on it all.
I want him to be remembered as everything I have already mentioned
above but more so, he helped influence so many musicians &
songwriters. He was a quiet, gentle soul with a very intense passion
for his craft. I have been associated with him since 1994 but it was
when we started Talisman is when he truly became a brother, one of my
It is far too early to say anything now but I plan to organize a
memorial for his legacy, although not known by the masses, the ones who
do see him as the genius I know he was.

forever & I'll see you on the other side...I hope now you will get
your dream & jam with Phil Lynott!!
