Yeah, yeah, we seem to hold people up who are dealt to tragically however I'm not sure all these artists were squeaky clean themselves. Who knows the "real circumstances" around these artists deaths??
Muddy Waters himself said of Little Walter that he loved drinking and wasn't a nice person to be around when he was. LW was a fighter not a lover.
And RJ havin affairs, well what can one say but watch out!
