An incredibly underrated musician that released three sad and beautiful albums before committing suicide. His final album, sarcastically titled "It's a Wonderful Life" was his best and is a classic, or at least it should be. The best songs on that album are the first three: It's A Wonderful Life, Gold Day, and Piano Fire.
