Reflections from Rodd's daughter, Stacey Keith, from Houston, TX / June 18, 2002
"Rodd was the kind of megawatt musician who can't help but to vandalize himself.
History is littered with men just like him: brilliant ne'er-do-wells who hit the wall with
pyrotechnic penache. What redeems Rodd--from obscurity, at least--is his sense
of humor. It is apparent in every line of every song he sharked. You will hear it, too, and
perhaps something more. I do. To me, Rodd's song poems are like tinsel on an artificial tree:
irrelevant, yes, but oddly memorable. Even haunting. When I listen, I don't hear a dead man.
I hear a man who failed to bear up under life's perplexing ironies."
