    Did not read that much from him, but throughly enjoyed the "Plot against America", a clever mix of fiction and politics

                • He was a down to earth, kind man according to a number of average joe who met him. I enjoyed his food shows for the few I have followed. No BS. No pretense. No nonsense.

                  • Bourdain is one of the more surprising (suicides) in my lifetime.

                    I know he was a former heroin addict, and he always carried himself with a bit of...something, I don't know how to describe. But from my perspective, one of those guys I thought had gotten over it and would carry on. Of course you never really know someone, much less a celeb.

                    Say what you want about his politics, that doesn't matter. The man spent his life trying to teach people to get over THAT, and learn about cities and cultures from their cuisine. Which frankly, is brilliant.

                    RIP, Anthony.

                    • Anthony Bourdain just showed us that all the accolades and praise in the world means nothing, and the rest are mere distractions, in the end its only between you and the person staring back at you on the mirror that will be the final judge if you can live with yourself or not... RIP you glorious bastard, till death you lived by your own rules, going into parts unknown, with no reservations.

                                Danny Kirwan has died, aged 68.

                                Kirwan was part of the iconic band from 1968 to 1972, playing on the albums Then Play On, Blues Jam at Chess, Kiln House, Future Games and Bare Trees.

                                Fleetwood writes that Kirwan's legacy "will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac".
                                Kirwan was among the eight members of the band — along with Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Peter Green, John McVie, Christine McVie and Jeremy Spencer — who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
