He Died 50 Years Ago Today

I was 12. I had no idea how much we had lost.

"To me, politics is nothing more than the search of certain individuals for private power. They can cloak it in any ideology and any romantic, philosophical bullshit terms they want, but it’s essentially a private search for power. I think your politics, your religion, your philosophy are not so much what you smoke, what you drink, what you wear … your hair, your face, what you’ve done. Your religion or your politics is what you devote the majority of your time to. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s outbursts of achievement. I don’t think it matters whether you’re a communist, anarchist, capitalist. It doesn’t matter."

I saw this kid mentioned in Rolling Stone. I went through a number of his videos. All are solid compositions, reminiscent of 90's bands like Eve6. Most were a bit too teen love gone wrong song for my taste, but that is where he's coming from and who he is singing to.All of them are tight and catchy. He has a great future. This song is a powerful suicide prevention fundraiser.
