Such a lovely, incredible man. Rock Bottom is one of the greatest records ever made, and still sounds contemporay. He also has one of my favorite quotes from any interview.
'Well, mine went, "Ah, Alfie, ah Alfie, ah Alfie...". But when Alfie heard it, she said, you can't sing that, and I said I can, look, it's dead minimalist, it's really far out, and she said, no, you're being fucking lazy, write some words, people want something to listen to. So I said, OK, you want some fucking words, I'll give you some fucking words.'
