There will be people who will check him out because of his death

“There will be people who will check him out because of his death, but I think it will plateau after awhile, and in the future, there’s going to be some kind of revival. I think that his music will come into its own even more. And at that point, his work will overshadow his death, but there is also the unfortunate point of his death becoming mythologized and adding to what I’d term a negative appreciation, to have someone lionize him as a troubled, drug-addict genius. There’s nobody around here in Portland who has that point of view, but we don’t really have control over his legacy, either.”
