Having never met the man, I can't comment on whether he's 'likable' or not.
Certainly many people think that is last name should be 'Asswell'. And,
indeed he has put out way too many boring pieces of music. Also, of course,
he's helped the 'furtherization' of his particular genre of music with many
healthy projects. I tend to think that the assholization of Laswell come
from a bit of jealousy and resentment about a person who has drive, desire
and commitment to a particular vision. More power to that type of
individual, if not to Bill himself. Hello Miles Davis.
