Who hasn't heard of Roni Size? You'd face ridicule in most musical circles If you didn't pay homage to the man who defined an era of music and a whole new sound in drum & bass. Roni Size is passionately against the idea of pigeonholing his music into any particular time period, and is certainly not a man with a huge ego.
Tell him that his 1997 album New Forms was a groundbreaklng piece of work and he'll laugh and try and prove you wrong. To Roni, it's a work in progress - like his approach to album creation in general. The fact that New Forms bagged a Mercury Music Prize will make little difference to your argument in Roni's eyes, he feels he's still learning and, more importantly, still loving his work.
