Why he might not be annoying
Rolling Stone described his music as 'raucous blues with high energy soloing... all delivered with unflagging enthusiasm and wit.'
He said that his vocal limitations improved his songwriting 'because to really get over with a voice like mine... you have to have a strong story and really good words to capture people's imagination.'
He toured and recorded with B.B. King.
His ex-wife Jennifer and daughter Selina were murdered in a bizarre extortion scheme (2000).
