He's a very interesting person. If you ever get a chance to go through his "Real World" label records, they're worth a listen. Sheila Chandra and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan are a couple of my favourites, but the recordings he made for researching the soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ are the most ear-opening.

Seeing him in double hearing-aids was almost as off-putting as seeing Eric Clapton in bifocals.
