I’m heartbroken at the passing of my friend and collaborator Ed Cherney. He was one of the greats, truly. His heart and soul and mastery somehow combined to make a special kind of magic that never failed to elevate anything he was working on, and anyone working with him. A rare bird indeed. Ed, I will miss your crooked smile, infectious laugh, and beautiful music. Thank you for sharing some of it with me. Rest well..
Missing my dear friend Ed Cherney. There aren’t enough words to express what he meant to me and everyone’s life he enriched with his presence. I’m at a loss for words as this is very hard for me to write. I love you and miss you dearly my friend. My heart goes out to you Rose. Rest In Peace Eddie ❤️
RIP Ed Cherney. It seems impossible that he’s left us so soon. He was just at my house for our wedding a few months ago. I was lucky enough to work with him on Smokey Robinson’s album last year, and over the past 10 years serving as elected leaders for the Recording Academy. I’m the luckiest to have counted him as my friend. He made the world a better brighter place through the music he created and who he was and how he lived his life. One of my favorite people on the planet. My heart is broken.
I have just heard the sad news about the death of my friend Ed Cherney Today we have lost an industry icon and more importantly a very special man. To say ED was kind, humble, funny would not be enough, he was one of those great people that if you are lucky, you may get to meet in this lifetime. On top of that of course, Ed was an audio legend.
I just texted with Ed about 4 weeks ago and although he told me about his illness, he was still upbeat, positive and making jokes..as Ed would!
The news is still a big shock and right now my thoughts are with Rose Mann-Cherney and all of Ed’s family and friends.
Ed Cherney, I am so grateful to you for all the good times we spent together, all the stories you told me, and all the advice you gave me.
R.I.P Eddie. You really were the best of us.
Sending condolences and love to all, especially Rose.
