Even today, he still pushes the envelope. For someone to take that kind of approach with his music and then show interest in playing with us is really inspiring.

Ambrose Gwinett Bierce
ICONOCLAST, n. A breaker of idols, the worshipers whereof are imperfectly gratified by the performance, and most strenuously protest that he unbuildeth but doth not reedify, that he pulleth down but pileth not up. For the poor things would have other idols in place of those he thwacketh upon the mazzard and dispelleth. But the iconoclast saith: "Ye shall have none at all, for ye need them not; and if the rebuilder fooleth round hereabout, behold I will depress the head of him and sit thereon till he squawk it."
Ambrose Gwinett Bierce

 Bible,
But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof: / Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience? / For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? / Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
