This is going to be a bitch of a death for the rock/metal community to handle.
It's necessary to preserve his legacy as one of the folk heroes of rock, because he was massively/pre-eminently important...
But holy fuck did he do a lot of reprehensible/disgusting shit. In the current SJW climate that is going to be a shitstorm in the next couple of days. It's no secret that rock/metal is a bunch of old white guys who are willing to look the other way on shit like that. If he was anyone less important/foundational it wouldn't even be a question, but unfortunately he's so incredibly influential that we're just going to excise all the nasty bits for the good of community and the sense of history.
It's no secret that I fucking hate Jimmy Page and don't listen to Led Zeppelin. That dude straight up raped/kidnapped some underage girl. Even if I did like their music that much (I don't), I'm not for idolizing shitty people. I don't listen to Dissection at all, I can't personally reconcile liking some douchebag murder for their art and don't subscribe to "separate the art and the artist" bullshit.
So yea, tough situation to say the least. It's not right to look the other way on all the terrible shit he did, but he's too important to write off.
Guess that's the human condition or some shit. Massively important dude, really of unprecedented importance, but I am disappointed in a lot of the communities willingness to "forget" a lot of the horrible shit he did.
