Remember Mrs. Vargas from Fast Times at Ridgemont High? Very small part played by Lana Clarkson, she was the woman he shot and killed in his apartment.

Between that and the treatment of Ronnie Spector, 81 years was more than he deserved.

and all the other horrible things he did in his life.

I'll give him credit for his producing work in the 60's but not sad he's gone.

"“A genius irredeemably conflicted, he was the ultimate example of the Art always being better than the Artist, having made some of the greatest records in history based on the salvation of love while remaining incapable of giving or receiving love his whole life,” Stevie Van Zandt wrote on Twitter.

well said, Stevie.

Interesting article. In my opinion I don't think the first headline was terribly wrong. His records were some of the greatest ever made and I don't think there is much debate that he wasn't a talented producer. That said, yeah...not a great human being in every other sense of the word. I'm just not sure those getting shut down by some on social media for admiring his work deserve such scorn but I guess that's the way things are these days.
