I really do not know how to express how mad I am that I did not take the opportunity to see him live when I had the chance...fuck!
He was a total rock hero, and innovator. Had one of the most notorious voices, full of an emotionally monotony that carried a certain passionate apathy, it expresses our modern condition: we care too much to show you we care...the lyrics told you what you really needed to hear and the music tells you what to feel. He wrote a lot about drugs, sex and S&M...ironically he died on a "Sunday Morning", and I have played this album on nice Sunday mornings like today because it is a really great way to wake up...
Rest in peace, you music genius...
