“Young was on ‘20/20’ with Bob Woodruff the other night, telling us all about it, telling about how he protected a liar like Edwards with lies of his own, and now wants us to pin a medal on him because he’s got a new house that needs financing.”
“Sometimes politics seems to be a parade of guys like this, an endless parade of lightweights and phonies and horny, aging adolescents, to the point where you imagine the whole thing with floats, like it’s the Macy’s parade on Thanksgiving.”
“What Edwards did to his wife, who he is, that will never be funny.”
“Wilco” is a five-letter word for the quiet slaughter of all that is elemental, passionate, and reverentially stupid about rock ‘n’ roll.
Their peak party moments sound like a good time as described by someone who hasn’t actually had one.
Wilco: The Band That Rocks, Within Reason.
I also didn’t understand what critics and friends meant when they would say things like, “Wilco are the American Radiohead.” Wilco are not the American Radiohead. Wilco are maybe six weary Jackson Brownes. Or what sandblasted jeans would say if they could talk*. Listening to Wilco is like finding a rainbow between gray and tan.
The last thing I want is a fight. Please hear me out:
If you want to use the bio for Rachelle's homepage, you're welcome to it. All I ask, then, is $60, which is the rate that we agreed on. If you remove the bio from her page, there's no issue, and you don't owe me a dime. Pretty simple.
Why haven't you responded to my messages? I know you're reading these e-mails. If the bio is not removed from her page by this Friday (6/5), I'll be contacting my lawyer. Please show some courtesy to someone who provided you a service.
I'm not a bad guy, Deb...I just don't like being taken advantage of. How would you like to be stiffed out of payment? I'm not writing these things for my health.
Thanks for your time. I'll be checking her page throughout the week to see if she's taken it down.
(Kid) Rock shows his wistful side, too. "All Summer Long" takes its inspiration from "Night Moves," by Bob Seger (Kid's Michigan idol), mashing up the piano lick from "Werewolves of London" with bits of "Sweet Home Alabama" for a story of sexual awakening. It's stirring stuff.
