I just heard the news that he hung himself in a hotel room this morning. I have enjoyed him and enjoyed his great show Parts Unknown, since the show first came on. Kitchen Confidential is also fantastic! Iíve learned so much about food, culture, history, etc... from him. He was incredibly interesting and an amazing storyteller. I am always drawn to very passionate, original people....and he was certainly that. He always had my attention because he was so real. Very very sad news indeed.
Very sad news.
