    I first saw him on the 2nd SNL (Richard Pryor hosted - '75) and was hooked! I also saw him two different times at The Boulder Theater (CO). GREAT live show!!

    He surely did get raked-over-the-coals for "Angel Dust"....typically by people who never listened to the lyrics.

    I just heard of him here in this thread.

    I can tell he loved Jazz and tried to say something with his music.

    I will be checking out more of his music in the future.
