      As I look through this thread, I'm struck by the absence of

      Jerome kern
      Irving Berlin
      Lerner and Lowe
      Rogers and Hammerstien
      Rogers and Hart
      George Gershwin
      George M Cohan

      I have to admit with the exception of Gershwin, I'm not crazy about the music these men produced myself. It's the product of an earlier era, and like everybody else here, I don't relate to it. But these people have all spent their entire lives making music, and as musicians, we should at least be aware of what they did.

      Just a thought.
      "When I gave food to the poor, they called me a saint. When I asked why the poor were hungry, they called me a communist." - Mother Teresa.

      "If fascism ever comes to America, it will come wrapped in the American flag and carrying the cross of Jesus"- Sinclair Lewis.

      'Ketchup is a vegetable" - Ronald Reagan.

      "Let's all hope Olbermann gets put in the hospital for something serious fairly soon" - G.Z. Sound

        Big up for Joni Mitchell. Also Chuck Prophet and Richard Thompson (both of whom kick arse on guitar, also).
