19. DAMN!!!! This Man Was a Master... he truly was a gifted man
Edited on Mon May-10-10 04:33 PM by fascisthunter
I figured he was going go sooner than later due to his stroke years ago. Just to give you all a idea of what talent and will this man had, after he suffered a stroke he learned to paint and draw with his other hand. Snobs never could stand him, but he was always the real deal.

He inspired me early on and for that I thank him.
