Hi Erika,

Can't say much about punk ... other than being amazed that Iggy is still
alive and that he has 'come back' about 27 times!!  {Heck - the last time he
came back it was hard to tell him apart from James Taylor!}

But you did remind me of a story that the liner notes on a recent artist's
double album retrospective were penned by Quentin Tarentino (of 'Pulp
Fiction fame) who [apparently] claims this guy was the "father" of gansta
rap!! ... The artist? .... Johnny Cash!! 

Interesting?!     :-)

(Who still has the Stooges "Raw Power" on vinyl! ... (is it worth anything
yet?) ... and whose son just happens to be '15'!)

May 01 issue has kind of an interesting article & photos on "25 years 
of Punk."  I'm only partway thru but it's kind of interesting, you 
know, trying to define the genre of what is "punk" and the history 
and stuff...
