"Stewart [Lupton] had genius, but what first made the world notice him was his daring. The sorrow tied to that quality has been mentioned in obituaries, for he gave most things a try, narcotics among them. But the joy of it was what he said, sang, explored, and wrote, when others wouldn’t." — T.A Frank, Vanity Fair
