I’ve struggled with this too. My kids are just getting into listening to Michael Jackson. We haven’t banned his music in our house.

Bad (or at least troubled) people can create beautiful work. We can despise the person and love their work. Some folks can’t make that distinction, and so they ban everything he/she touches.

I don’t think either view is right or wrong. It’s a matter of how the individual processes these things.
