RIP, Paul Williams
Founder of Crawdaddy, polymath, brilliant and humble guy. I didn’t know the man, but everything I’ve heard or read about or by him was good.
Some people are talented and lucky; others have the talent, but less luck. He seemed to fall into the latter category. He was lucky in the family who surrounded him with love, as seen in the posts below, and his many admirers – writers who were inspired by his example, musicians who were appreciative of his intelligent appreciation, fans who got turned on to unexpected artists in unexpected ways by seeing and hearing them through his eyes and ears.. Maybe that’s the only kind of luck that counts.
