Steven Wells, one of the greatest, most opinionated rock writers that there ever was, has sadly died. If you need convincing as to why he was great, read this 'autobiography' that he wrote for Thom Yorke. It's brilliant.
EDIT: Steven Wells' last ever line in print: "Me? I blame it on sunshine. I blame it on the moonlight. I blame it on the boogie." Spooky.
