It's about the cover. Rolling Stone is one book you do "judge by the cover." There are books about the Rolling Stone covers. Being on the cover elevates an artist to a level above their music. I was not offended by the article, but as a musician who will never reach the lofty heights of a RS cover, this retouched, beautiful placement of a terrorist there, does bother me.
It's about the cover. The same as Playboy is about the centerfold. Would you stick the Bomber in there too because we as Americans need to be confronted with these truths everywhere? How would the African American community react if the last issue of Ebony featured a wonderful cover shot of a smiling Zimmerman smoking a Cuban cigar dockside along with an article helping us all understand him better?
I judge Rolling Stone in part by its covers. This one was a failure, even though the piece was well done.
mat catastrophe that is funny. I agree. And I have tried to call the club from my home and cell phone only to get a) busy signal b) no answer c) a person answering who said something incomprehensible and then hung up. d) a person who, when I asked if there was music that night, said "yes" and hung up.
So if a club can't utilize its phone in a way that benefits someone trying to make a decision where to go that night or some upcoming night, a web site might be a good idea. Dontcha think?
Thank you for noting the lack of Web Site. I moved here four months ago and am used to going to see local shows 5-6 times a month, but can't ever figure out on a Friday night where this club is or who is playing. In fact, I had assumed it closed because of a lack of updated web site.
