@HookReader: Truth be told, his editor (moi) added that word. I'll substitute critically-acclaimed and see if that's a better fit.--hawes spencer

If y'all like BritPop (which I know is popular in Esmont and Standardsville), check out Martin Newell. He keeps cranking 'em out! R.I.P.: Screaming Lord Sutch

Sorry, folks, but that lame Jon Landau line: "I saw rock 'n roll's future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen" is a sorry cliche floated by his acolytes. If that was written in the mid-'70s, I'd like to thank Mr. Landau for his prescience: a few years later we got punk, then its sanitized cousin...

I substituted that for Gesualdo just before pushing the send button because I was afraid I'd be accused of admiring a murderer. Bad enough to associate myself with that "gone and forgotten" ruffian from Bristol.
