I wonder if there is a way to find out who the man was? I had a neighbor who was homeless and a alcoholic. We tried to help him but to no avail. After 2 yrs of putting him in numerous sober living facilities, we had to give up because of our children. He kept getting into trouble for hanging out in public places and public urination but the police couldn't do anything. I pray the man isn't him.

He's an internationally known musician in the experimental music community. One of the bands he was in is called Points of Friction. His limited edition works are much sought after.

Under the name of Agog and in the group Points Of Friction he was one of the most unique artists. This is so sad...
