Wesley Willis

Wesley Willis was a schizophrenic street singer who built up a small cult following with his bizarre, three-chord rants about trivial everyday items, music, and people he knew. Willis was discovered singing on the streets of Chicago in the early '90s. For the first part of the decade, several independently released tapes of his songs appeared, eventually followed by indie recordings of his albums. By 1995, he had gained the attention of several well-known musicians, including Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam. Shortly before signing a major-label contract with American Records in 1996, Willis was profiled on MTV, which resulted in increased recognition in certain alternative rock circles. However, it didn't result in good sales, and both of his American Records of 1996 -- Fabian Roadwarrior (released in August) and Feel the Power (released in October) -- were flops. Black Light Diner appeared to little notice in 1997. And in mid-2000, Willis released Dr. Wax and Rush Hour. Shake Your Piggy Bank followed in early 2001. Willis was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002 and was recovering from surgery when he died at the age of 40 on August 21, 2003.~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

To anyone who badmouths Wesley, what are you all doing now? While your all sitting there bashing him he made the most out of what he had. We should all be so wise

Saw Wesley play at the Magic Stick once. Some guy with a mullet swaggered by while Wesley played Cut the Mullet onstage. I don't think he had any clue he was being mocked by a fat schizophreni c guy.

I love that his biography omits Wesley Willis refused high-fives from fans and would instead deliver headbutts. Rock over London, rock on Chicago.

I actually lived in a guest house he stayed in years ago. It was strange knowing he had lived there. he was one of the most famous people that noone knew. Yet he would headline alternative music festivals. He is missed. Rest in peace and lick a cheetah's a**.

This brings back memories. Wesley used to hang out up in Green Bay, WI a lot in the early/mid nineties. He was the coolest, nicest guy ever. He greeted everyone with a friendly headbutt...s o much so that he developed a permanent bruise on his forehead. He was one of the good ones!!! R.I.P. Wesley!!!

One night, while my friend John was living in Chicago, he received a phone call from Wesley Willis: "Hello, this is Wesley Willis. Have you heard of Wesley Willis and the Fiasco?" It was super late, and John had apparently never heard of the esteemed Mr. Willis, so he hung up. Wesley called back. And called back. And called back. He was going through THE ENTIRE CHICAGO PHONE BOOK doing this to everyone. RIP thug angel
