I read the report of his death which is saddening on a number of fronts . He has struggled with his health for years he had beaten a few forms of cancer which must have taken great determination and inner strength . I have to say I was amazed how much money he had amassed for someone who was not particularly mainstream but sadly through issues with his management company he lost a fortune and had been declared bankrupt during the nineties but he fought back from the brink. A true performer just one week before he died he surprised two of his biggest fans twin sisters on the celebration of their 95th birthday by performing at their party . At such a young age of 64 it is a very sad loss.
