And Dave Greenfield is dead, and I am old, and I am really feeling the fragility of life. There were never any heroes, at least not for smart people. There was only ever those who got it and those who didnít. Only stupid people have heroes. But The Stranglers definitely changed my life, and I will play Rattus Norvegicus through yet again, for the umpteenth time, full volume, headphones. And I will ponder once more the many strangenesses of this futile existence, to the sound of Daveís shimmering organic organ. These precious, brief candles. Please keep yours burning for me.
