That's too bad I've been a reluctant fan for better than 20 years I bet. Reluctant because he's probably the most idiotic irresponsible person I've ever 'known' and a fan because I loved his rambles. Makes me feel kinda guilty, he's always been a guilty pleasure of mine.

a quote from that article that pretty much echos how I felt about the man:

quote:
But every editor that I know, myself included, was willing to accept a certain prima donna journalism in the demands he would make to cover a particular story ... They were willing to risk all of his irresponsible behavior in order to share his talent with their readers.

- Paul Krassner



In retrospect I'd imagine there's a whole lot of people that were close to him that wished they weren't so willing to accept.

I have to admit to being unfamiliar with this person. I don't like to hear about people offing themselves though

ditto.

Bugs, are you just unfamiliar with him or you have *never* heard of him?

I too have been a small fan of his. Terrible shame. I wish I knew some more details though. I never thought I'd see him go like that.
