No, I'm not offended. I didn't know about his criminal record until I was reading about his death yesterday, but I agree with your stance on that. It wasn't so much that I was really feeling sad, it was more that I was thinking about how for once I'm not hearing about someone who has died in their sixties, and it also just started a thought process that culminated in "All the people who are significant figures in rock history will be dying out, if they haven't already died, during my lifetime." I don't know how if I'll ever be able to not find Roll Over Beethoven or Johnny B Goode catchy, but I do agree that knowing about the things he did that were bad does change my feelings.
