AA,

I too welcome Yusuf back to the world from the peace of the grave.

'At a certain point I said, "I've got more living to do," and I stopped making music, and I started living.'

Wasn't Yusuf a Salafi? He stopped making music because he thought, like other Salafis, that musical instruments (except the duff, or whatever that questionable hadith reportedly says) are sinful. Happily, he's left that particular Salafi stupidity behind, hopefully for good.

Hope all is well with you.
