i don't think it's awful and i think he should still do what he loves to do: make music. sure he may not perform well anymore, but that really shouldn't stop him from doing what he loves.Because it's awful and seeing him perform is really bad, he can hardly move anymore.

The article itself has quite a prog. bias though. Take a look at this quiz.
