Good Lord! This was the biggest shock for me on this site: seeing how underrated and obscure this musician/poet is. For so many of my friends here in South Africa this guy was huge. Bigger than Bob Marley.

Here's a story to demonstrate just how much he meant to so many White lefties in SA:

My friend Marc was conscripted into the South African army in the late 80s (as were all of us), but like so many, was deeply disturbed by what was expected of him. After a few months they sent him to a military hospital for a few months for 'psychiatric evaluation'.

The only thing that kept him sane in this maddest of mad corners of 1980s SA was the music of Rodriguez and LKJ.

Many years later, he had the opportunity to see LKJ perform in Grahamstown, a small university town in South Africa. Afterwards he burst into the dressing room and on seeing his hero face to face blurted out: "LKJ!!! You saved my fucken life!!!"

To which LKJ calmly replied: "Dat's very cool mon but Ahm busy doin a TV interview here."

Marc hadn't noticed a small film crew set up on the other side of the room!

Great story. This guy was huge here.
