Hi Jack! I recall a Gary Lewis interview (Goldmine, I think?) from the ‘70s or early ‘80s where he was so bitter about the changing musical tide that rendered his career passé. The interviewer asked him what he thought about newer groups, like The Ramones. Gary’s response: “zero talent.” He was also asked how he felt about Jimi Hendrix. Gary’s response: “zero talent.”

(St. Marks) Sounds was my go-to spot in the Village for used/cheap vinyl & CDs, but I don't remember the staff much, they didn't seem to talk to you a lot. Venus, across the street, was different: the guys there would play all kinds of stuff there (from punk to oldies, & that might be where I first heard the famed Casey Kasem rant) & were friendlier, from what I remember. In their last days, they had some kind of deal where you got a token every time you bought something & could later trade them in for stuff....I miss all those places & I picked up stuff there that I'm sure is hard to find now (or selling for outrageous prices on eBay & elsewhere).

I saw Dylan do "Get Out of Denver" in Detroit in 2004. It was amazing. Really!! Check it on YouTube..

The Muffs were one of the bands of 2020 for me. Lots of joy, a little poignancy, catchy as can be. Exactly what I needed a lot of times.

Man, I never missed Rockpile when they came to town, they totally ruled my ‘70s! I caught that EC/Mink D/Rockpile show @ the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ. That was one happening venue. Saw Stymie & Spanky “in person” there in ‘74. Great show Mikey!

I'm always pleasantly surprised when I hear Sarah Vaughan on FMU. She's not played much here.
Thanks Michael!

Saw Rockpile 2x in '79....first, opening for Blondie at Belmont Racetrack (they used to have shows there after the races, they may have opened with "The Race is On") & then a month or 2 later at the Palladium (RIP) with John Cooper Clarke (weird Brit poet who looked like Dylan in his "Blonde on Blonde" period) & David Johansen opening. Amazing both times.
