This seems strange to me, coming from a guy who reacted to the record industry's reluctance to distribute his work by creating his own successful record company and then, in the last ten years of his life, sponsored a series of travelling lecture shows by western business executives to teach entrepreneurial skills in post-Soviet Russia. Of course, this was the same man who wrote "The Idiot Bastard Son" and advised us not to eat the yellow snow . . .
