the one thing which to me doesn't add up is what kind of a contract he signed with his record company. To have huge record sales (albeit in another country) and not even have a clue? that's some serious exploitation.

That was an amazing story.

I may have just missed it, but what happened with the story of him burning himself alive on stage? Did they say that turned out to be a myth or was it someone else or?

They didn't really go into details, but it was definitely a myth.

Here's his wiki page. It tells a bit more about him.
