That's really a great Rockumentary, really worth getting wasted to watch and listen.

A fascinating and very complex guy. When I was a little dude one of the songs my mom liked singing to me was Chuck's Havana Moon. Not knowing from alcohol I imagined rum tasted something like caramel syrup.  :D  Which isn't that far off when it comes to the good stuff…

Me all alone with jug o' rum
Me stand and wait for boat to come

Yeah, got it on an LP...

I saw him doing a gig in Glasgow some many years ago; he was great - the audience would have eaten out of his hand. Then he blew it all away: wouldn't come out for an encore. Not one.

I so wished he hadn't ever recorded Ding a ling, though... probably made money, but did he need to do crap like that by then?

As you say, complex! Miss him.
