we are sorry that you died last night. You taught us to spin off an axis, set to any angle. It was great the way you ditched fame to make more art. You were a true artist, and when we have eaten lentils for several days in a row, we remember that that's how you made Trout Mask Replica.
The other day a new learned friend asked us weather we went to art school. She had been discussing the matter with another learned friend. They concluded that we couldn't have been to art school, because if we did, we wouldn't have had such 'gusto'. We explained that we did go to art school, we went to punk school, or which you were of course, Dean.
We shall continue to work very hard at being unpredictable.
