Robert Pirsig had more impact on my intellectual development than I can measure (up there with Carl Sagan & others). He was a giant and a genius and as talented as any human who has walked Planet Earth. I cannot say enough about him...so I will (at least for now) say no more.
Just gonna down a few shots of rum in his honor and continue to Chase the Dragon....
Here is a song I dedicated to him a few years back on the 3rd & final Alien Blue album called "The Mountain" (blues meets reggae with a George Benson-esque guitar solo)...warts and all (as it should be):
Go do something great, people. Write your name across the sky.
