54. I read that when I looked him up!

Really sad...I loved Leary and watched Rescue Me...so disappointed. I liked Tool and read about their relationship. This is what I read:

But in 1993 Hicks was angered by Leary's album No Cure for Cancer, which featured lines and subject matter similar to Hicks's routine.[23] According to American Scream: The Bill Hicks Story by Cynthia True, upon hearing the album "Bill was furious. All these years, aside from the occasional jibe, he had pretty much shrugged off Leary's lifting. Comedians borrowed, stole stuff, and even bought bits from one another. Milton Berle and Robin Williams were famous for it. This was different. Leary had practically taken line for line huge chunks of Bill's act and recorded it."[24]

The friendship ended abruptly as a result.

Bill apparently hated Leno, which is an automatic like (in my book) to Hicks.

Thank you for enlightening me on a talented guy, as you gave the original quote.
