FTFY :wink:

To steal/paraphrase a quote from someone else: I find it hard to appreciate one of the (then) most successful people in the world singing "imagine no possessions".

RIP to the guy, he did some good stuff, but was nowhere near the biggest loss to music.

He was one of the biggest losses to music and culture generally, whatever you think Koupe.
