    So some people can say something nice and perhaps convince themselves they are a roundly decent person when the majority of their other output here is antisocial,ignorqnt and nasty comments about people or groups of people.

    His music was always the dirgey bit on any mix tape I would fast forward, because his music always brings me down.

    I expect I'm not alone in that, video had surprisingly few hits for such a will known tune.

    It's that better? X)

    RIP though, I'm sure he was a fine bloke.
