Liked him and related acts but after going down a wiki rabbit hole it’s absolutely insane how many seminal works he was involved with between 1973 and 1983ish. Often loads in the same year. Can’t think of anyone who can compare, and it’s only really just occurred to me how impressive it is when you put it in some kind of chronology - are there any biographies, long reads etc that focus on that era specifically? Send them my way
