What he forgot, we never knew! Like Vic, I wasn't really into him. Like Zappa & Lane, their genius is without doubt...I just find it hard music to listen to.
It's an extra sad state of affairs in some repects, as he was a true "artist" and obviously put ALL his resources into his career, hence his family asking for help to fund his funeral service! To have such acclaim as he did in the guitar community but at 70 years of age and still being broke, is a sad thing.
Purple guitars kick ass!
