Horrible news. One of the world's most respected and influential musicians has passed away. Singer-songwriter Wesley Willis died Thursday. The cause of his death is unknown, but it is speculated that it resulted due to complications with Lukemia.
With a body of work that included over fifty albums and such inspirational tunes as "Rock n Roll McDonald's," "I Whupped Batman's Ass," "Cut the Mullet," "Elvis Presley," and "I'm Sorry That I Got Fat," Willis was an artist who will surely be revered throughout the ages. With any luck, fellow musicians will get together soon and produce a tribute album.
