Wow. Horrible news.

I was just thinking about him a couple days ago, how he said in the documentary about Salinger that fame is the worst thing a person can experience, the constant interference and meddling, that he empathized with Salinger being a recluse. I hate to go here but it may be a loss for us but a huge win for him, to come back not famous.

To be honest I think he's been selfish and irresponsible.

Nobody stuck a smack needle into his arm apart from him.

You are so right. I've seen people myself who've done that in the past, and in the end it's personal choice whether to go on detox or not to.
Considering the finances he had, I'd say it was pure self indulgence and disregard for those left behind
