Wesley Willis Died
From a 1996 MTV Interview..
TABITHA SOREN: What's in here?
WESLEY WILLIS: What's in my bag is my portable CD player. I use the CD player to go on bus rides of joy, but then I go on bus rides to hell.
SOREN: I see...
WILLIS: But the demon in my head talks to me with profanity. I do not want to hear. The demon thinks I'm a bum, a jerk, and an a-hole.
SOREN: So whatever you're playing knocks all that out of your head?
WILLIS: Whenever that CD player that I play puts music on.... it keeps me on the joy ride. It keeps out the hell-bus.
SOREN: When you were outside, how did you feel about all those strangers coming up to you and talking to you?
WILLIS: I loved them, and I loved them like super-chicken.
SOREN: Isn't that annoying, having people come up to you that you don't even know?
WILLIS: I just want to meet them. As long as they are nice I can meet them.
DALE MEINERS, The Wesley Willis Fiasco: Wesley's really cool. You know, I've dealt with guys who are addicted to heroin, and stuff like that. That is a real bad time, you know? Did you ever see the Chuck Berry video? These guys... There's some very strange rock stars out there. Wesley in comparison is very cool.
