From Wikipedia:Kevin Gilbert (November 20, 1966 – May 17, 1996) was an
American songwriter, musician, composer, producer and collaborator
born in Sacramento, California. He died at age 29 from apparent
autoerotic self-asphyxiation.Gilbert was an accomplished instrumentalist and composer, who played
trumpet, keyboards, guitars, drums and bass, as well as singing
vocals. His talents also extended to producer. He toured with
Eddie Money before winning the 1988 Yamaha SOUNDCHECK International
Rock Music Competition with his progressive rock group Giraffe.[2]
Producer Patrick Leonard was impressed with Gilbert’s performance at
the competition and invited him to join him in forming a new band
which became Toy Matinee. During this time, Gilbert worked on the
projects of several established pop musicians, including Madonna,
Michael Jackson, and Keith Emerson, acting as producer for the
latter’s album Changing States.

The lone Toy Matinee album (eponymously named) was released in 1990
but effectively shelved by the record company, so Gilbert assembled a
new backing band to promote it, eventually getting two successful
singles released: “The Ballad of Jenny Ledge” and “Last Plane Out”.

Later, Gilbert was part of a songwriting collective
(called “The Tuesday Music Club”) that met at producer
Bill Bottrell’s studio in Pasadena, California.[3] After
he began bringing his then-girlfriend Sheryl Crow to the sessions,
the result was Crow’s debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club.Gilbert
co-wrote many of the songs on that album, including 1995 Grammy
Record of the Year “All I Wanna Do”. Crow later acrimoniously split
with most of the musicians in the collective and only producer
Bottrell and drummer Brian MacLeod were involved in her follow-up
album. Meanwhile the remainder of the collective worked with
singer-songwriters Susanna Hoffs and Linda Perry on two more albums.

Cover to the album ThudGilbert continued to work in television and
movie soundtrack work as well as studio work and producing and
eventually released his first solo album Thud (1995) as well as
partially reforming Giraffe to perform the Genesis masterpiece
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway at Progfest ’94. Gilbert’s manager
sent a copy of the recording to Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford who
were searching for a new Genesis front man to replace Phil Collins.
His manager, Jon Rubin, had come to Gilbert’s home to tell him that
he had managed to get him an audition and discovered his dead body.

Gilbert’s second solo album, The Shaming of the True was released
posthumously. The album was largely incomplete, but Gilbert’s
estate asked Spock’s Beard drummer Nick D’Virgilio to complete it
based on the extant tapes and Gilbert’s notes. A live album
(composed mostly of songs from Thud), a compilation of Giraffe
material that Gilbert had been working on, and an “industrial”
album with Gilbert’s latest group, Kaviar have also been released
in the years since his death. His estate has promised two more
posthumous studio albums and a live performance from Gilbert’s
promotional group for Toy Matinee.
