I've just had it confirmed by the Vinyl on Demand website that Michael Gross of the fantastic American synth band Experimental Products passed away earlier this year. The other member, Mark Wilde, died in the late 80s.

Sad news. Their music is outstanding and they surely made their place in synth music history. Shame both of them are gone now cry

Yes, a great shame. Why their 'Glowing in the Dark' EP wasn't huge back in the day I'll never know. Maybe if they'd edited the three songs down to 7" length they'd have had more success?

Anyway, their two CD compilations by Vinyl on Demand are well worth checking out.
