    Saw him both on Weltanschauuung and The Impotent Fury tours in Sydney. He's a terribly darling beardo. Look forward to seeing him again if he ever feels like coming back to our shores.

    I think we all know it, he's just a vicious, little, mysognyist bully. Not really, of course, that was just the fireworks talking. Really he's a lover, thinker, artist and prophet. An honourable man of art if you will, and the wobbly hearted amongst us should listen to his stories and pay attention to his weltanschauung.
