That sucks. While I can’t claim to have enjoyed everything I’ve read by him, his best stuff was brilliant.
Horseman, Pass By rivaled Steinbeck, and Lonesome Dove doesn’t need any extra praise, though it deserves all it has gotten.
I agree. Read a number of his works on a kick a few years back. Not all great, but some were. And with the others, he was really trying. His female characters were surprisingly good for his era.

I'm torn between commenting:

1) good riddance to bad rubbish

or

2)I didn't know Tony Levin led such a double life. Have they ever been seen in the same room together?

Tony Levin probably has more taste than to have ever been in the same room as G Gordon Liddy...

On hearing of his passing the first thing I thought of wasn't Wattergate, it wasn't "head shot", it was Robert Conrad who played him in the TV movie version of his autobiography Will.

IKR? I was all WTF was going on in the 80s that Tony Levin would end up ... oh it's that fuckhead.

I have to admit that the bombast of his radio show was transgressively amusing for about a week and a half in 1991. His shelf life as a fascinating train wreck was even shorter than Limbaugh's.

RIP to an absolutely real one. His entire family were actual Nazis and pedos, but he had a preternatural ability to crack great racist jokes.

Just imagine Prince Phillip on Opie and Anthony, or riffing hard with Shane Gillis and Nick Mullen on Cum Town. Cracking hard on Italians ...

*chef's kiss*

We have lost so many ways to use the word "wog" tonight.

Rest In Peace, sweet prince.

The important question is how will they make the funeral a safe and supportive environment for Meghan Markle.

DMX passed.

Yesterday the surgeon I was working with insisted on dmx music and nothing else because he was going off life support. "All day. Every day. Ruff!" He really did bark.

For me the biggest loss was his view on fame. When confronted about his lyrics and deviance he pointed out hes not a good role model. Hes just trying to enjoy himself and make money. He even pointed out he has asthma and has to step off stage at some shows to take medication. Then gets back on stage. Because hes not giving anyone their money back.

I respected that.
