Very sorry to hear this.

Roy was also one of the best "entertainers" on the scene which is often overlooked.

Yes, his choice of songs and subjects were often very serious and political and certainly made you think. However, his presentation was always warm, sincere, and humorous.
I believe this actually helped in getting the message across to the audience compared to the "preachy" approach which many protest writers and singers often choose to adopt.

Of course, he was a wonderful singer as well. What a voice.
