I never met Steve Jobs. Still, I feel that in many ways, I would not be living the life I lead today were it not for his vision and his company. I’m sure I’d still write and make music, of course, but in many ways, it was the elegance of the Mac, how it became more than a tool, but a creative partner, that nourished my own creativity and exploration. And that’s what Steve did. He built a company that built products that nourished creativity. And there are a lot of people like me, who never met Steve Jobs, but have had our lives enriched by him.
Thank you, Steve.
And as the angels carry you away, look down, and see just how many lives you’ve touched, how many people are using Apple products, and how much light has been brought to the world thanks to creative people and their Macs, iPhones, and iPads.
You will be dearly, and deeply, missed.
