I still get goosebumps listening to it - he was only 20 years old, bless his heart. No wonder he couldn't deal with the pressure that came with fame. Media were, as usual total bastards unsympathetic to this quiet, talented young man. As indeed they are to any great artist that doesn't fit with their idea of superstar. I watched the BBC documentary on his reflections from 2014, now in his sixties. He's alright in my book and I will always listen to his work with delightful relish.
