‘I don’t understand why there’s — You know what, I don’t care what a lot of people want. You know? I’d rather say, just don’t buy the f****** book, then, if I’ve offended someone. Don’t listen to my records. Cause I’m only telling you my story, I’m not here trying to advise anyone or tell anyone what to do or tell anyone what to think, and I’m not here as a spokesperson for anyone. I’m just telling my story. So the fact that I’ve been — you know, it’s almost like a lynch mob.’

For one thing, if Miley Cyrus is pornographic, what on earth was Prince in 1979? And for another to claim the tragedy in Syria has ANYTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH, with discussing Chrissie’s statements regarding rape is pure asinine. If that is the case, why discussing anything? Why talk about music when a five year old child just died?

Following in the footsteps of contemporaries and friends Morrissey and Elvis Costello, this should be a very big deal in the world of rock and, how you say?, roll. If it is half as good as Moz’s memoir (I consider it genius but I realize I am in a minority) it will be great but it won’t be anything like it: I am assuming a lot of acerbic putdowns and exceedingly little we don’t know about Ray Davies

Sure, you thought it was gonna be Jack White (who I am seeing at Govs Ball today) but no, I’ve heard the new one many times and I think it is solid but not Blunderbuss, it lacks focus and it doesn’t have enough great songs. But Chrissie? Three songs in and I love em all and did you see her with the Roots the other day? Pretty excellent, right? Otherwise, I really wanna hear the Hot Chip cat and I am wondering about Ice T. First Aid Kit? O.A.R.?

The best act of the week is once again on Jimmy Fallon although I’ve just about had enough of him (our local morning news feels obligated to blast his ‘funniest bit’ over and over on the hour)he scored the coolest chick in music, Chrissie Hynde.

She stomps up with this new ditty “You or No One” and although it starts off in that nasal pitch I tend to dislike it evolves into a perfectly perfect toe tapping pop tune. Wow, it sounds like 1986 but in a good way.

Chrissie has been an icon and one of the handful of women with earned respect in the entire rock world. She has held it together with bad ass appeal and beauty of conviction. Every girl should aspire to be her, no one holds a candle to her.

The Pretenders lost 50% of their band to drugs. That’s a heavy cut and while Hynde and drummer Martin Chambers attempted to carry on the dynamic was gone. Void of any sex appeal whatsoever it just didn’t have that thigh tremble anymore and the case was closed.

In these songs, Dahl exemplifies a musical intensity, a meeting of soulfulness and electricity, “Green Tourmaline” is built around a crystalline guitar break that brings life to her metaphor for love, it is so strong it draws you up and gives you pause, it makes you think
