He was the first musician that I was really aware of when I was a young teenager. I remember reading all those teen magazines where he talked about how sad and lonely he felt in his life.
I was watching one of the specials on his life last night. From what those interviewed said, I guess those feelings never went away for him.
One thing, though, now that he has passed, I find I'm able to appreciate his old music again, without thinking of all the difficulties he's had in the past several years. He really was a fantastic musician and performer.
