Sound & Vision

I used to post songs from time to time, and the mood is upon me again. When I was 13, I ran into David (Spiders in tow) at a hotel in England where my family was staying for my brother's wedding. I guess they were in the middle of a Ziggy tour. This was a huge deal to an awkward, introverted teenager. I got to talk to him briefly - he was very, very kind. It's a bit of a cliché to look back & say an event was a life-changer. But for a kid exiled to a dull provincial town, it was a life-saver. The songs are always with you.
