    "Wesley Willis, peacefully passed away yesterday evening in his hometown Chicago, Willis, who suffered from schizophrenia and Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, was brought to a Chicago hospital to undergo emergency surgery at the beginning of June to supress some internal bleeding, but his health had reportedly been deteriorating since."

    That is sad news, he was a truly unique musician.

    i remember the first time i heard him, back in college. i didn't know what it was at first...i still don't think i do. but i still remember my friend jen singing, in a nursery rhyme melody, "rock and roll mc-doooon-alds."

    rock over london, rock on chicago. he'll be missed.

    May Wesley Willy rest in peace. 40 is definitely too young to die. My prayers go out to his family and friends!
