The man was a star.

The obituary in The Guardian closes: "Jones is survived by his mother and

13 children".

13!! Bloody hell, he was busy!

The food stamps story, reported here in Pitchforkmedia.com's obituary is also class -

"After hitting the scene in the early 1990s, ODB (who also went by, at

various times, Dirt McGirt, Osirus, Joe Bannanas, Dirt Dog, and Big Baby

Jesus) stood out among even the highly charged Wu-Tang Clan, thanks to both

his unorthodox, intense delivery and to his deranged sense of humor. In

1998, apparently miffed by losing to Puff Daddy, he crashed the stage at

the Grammy Awards and wrestled the mic away from singer Shawn Colvin as she

accepted her award, stating that he'd purchased expensive clothes for the

evening because he expected to win. In one of his more infamous stunts, he

took an MTV camera crew along with several of his children to a nearby

welfare office to pick up food stamps-- in a limousine."
