Uh, the question was whether he was "considered cool", which is exactly what you have to look to that sort of thing for. If you'd read my answer, you'd note that I did say he was deserving of his legend regardless of whether he was "considered cool" or not. I don't judge Johnny by the hacks that rip him off, nor ever claimed that I did. I just answered the question that was asked.
