Buncha bullshit. Writer writing writerly about music, thus missing the point entirely. Articles like that (which I couldn't read to the end, though I did try) are why I have no time for "the literary art of rock criticism".

Most of my favorite FZ tunes are instrumental, and I tune out almost all lyrics by anybody anyway, so the "smug/smut" element doesn't bother me either.

I found him somewhat funny when I was about 16-18 -- as an "adult" I don't really consider him a comedian or a pop star, but as one of the 20th century's finest bandleader, composer & musicians.

And yes it is probably very much like the Dead or Neil Young or other culty favorites: true fans probably don't care what others think, you get it or you don't . . . the point is not to be part of the biggest fanclub in the world (leave that to the Miley Cyruses of the world).
