Kevin Gilbert Mentioned On Rush Limbaugh

So I was listening to Rush Limbaugh this afternoon. He was reading a blog post by some far-left wacko about how Sarah Palin is the devil, blah blah blah. The writer is Cintra Wilson, who, Limbaugh explained, was the girlfriend of Kevin Gilbert at the time he died. A quick glance at her website gives you an idea of who we're dealing with. But one thing she and I agree on: the genius of Kevin Gilbert:
He was the most talented human being I ever knew. A bloody musical genius. Picked up a cello one day and just started playing it. He was quite famous in some musical circles for writing and performing a lot of deeply personal rock songs with a lot of wordy lyrics and massive integrity. He never had the raging commercial success as a musical genius that he so richly deserved, despite the fact that he'd won a Grammy.
Thanks, Rush, for providing little much-deserved exposure for the dead Kevin Gilbert. And thanks, Cintra, for blathering loudly and crassly enough for Limbaugh to comment on it.
