We have some disagreement, then. He will be remembered indefinitely for
a beautiful instrument used with solid if not exceptional technique.
Even more to the point (and to the above Subject), he will be remembered
for a rich discography. His limitations as a musician and as an actor
will become more significant to his memory as time passes and his last
years benefitted only his bank account, but he'll be remembered.
