    Rest in Peace. G1 had a lot of good pieces of music, and I love the DiCola inspired Season 3 score.

    Man, those songs will be forever ingrained in my brain. I sing them all the time just when I’m out and about.

    RIP.

    I still hum the tunes, every now and then. It's amazing how little tiny pieces of stuff like that has such an impact on you.
    Rest in peace, sir. To you it was just a job (and that's okay!), to us, it was something more. Thank you.

    Noooo! Rest in piece. Now we'll never get the season 3 soundtrack and the themes of all 3 seasons, do we? :(

    Terribly sad day. His brilliant music were a huge part of the soundtrack of my childhood and being that I still have G1 playing in the background often as I work, it'll forever be burned into my brain. RIP, and thank you, Mr. Walsh!

    Robert J. Walsh, your music was an integral part of the show. I shall always remain in wonder what inspired you in composing some of these Cybertronian tunes. Thank you.

    is this the same soundtrack that Earth Wars uses? I've been using it for my video's in the background as a means to cancel white noise for the last month!
    Even my wife who knows nothing about tf has come to like that tune and is saddened by the news.

    condolences to the family...

    It’s nice that we at least got the season 1 soundtrack in vinyl. Keep those fond memories and his legacy alive.

    NOOO! Sniff

    You guys wouldnt beleive how much I loved the G1 BGM music. I STILL put it on when doing stuff. Heck, I listen to it more than regular music.

    This is truly a sad day with Mr. Walsh and Mr. Douglas both gone!

    This was my favorite of the S3 rock/synthesizer songs
