    Way to not mention the name of the book.

    I saw the Pixies in 198..8? 89? The Apocalypse, Toronto. Was slammed down in the mosh, and ended up in a booze can later. Yea, memory is a thing. Good luck with that!

      Now - if Lizzy Goodman took on the task of writing a book about New York's global contribution to music across a century - that I would buy. Herculean task for sure but could be her magnum opus...and I think she's got the chops.

      I completely agree, New York has produced so much amazing music and amazing bands/artists. No matter what generation, New York seems to continually crank out something amazing for whatever time period. The Velvet Underground, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, and so many more, it's crazy how much good stuff is out there. Obviously, not everyone can like it all, and I respect our musical differences that way.

      I didn't know about the 9/11 release date - thanks. And I should also say that I'm in awe of the astonishing music New York artists have written and performed over the last 100 years. It's always been a hot-bed of creativity and center of excellence - and long may it continue to be. My opinions, right or wrong, are my opinions, shaped in no small measure by New York whatchagonnado?

      Oh, I definitely wasn't trying to convince you of it, simply trying to say that one of your points wasn't entirely true. I respect your opinion on the music itself. Also most of the bands talked about in the book like The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, etc. were playing and making music before 9/11 occurred. Is This It was supposed to be released the day 9/11 happened. However, much of their success was brought on by that event, but their self-expression and musicianship were all their own.

      Look - I don't believe in trashing musicians or their work (unless it's genuinely awful - which this is NOT) I think Lizzy Goodman has highlighted a regional watershed in social-expression - influenced hugely by 9/11. For the life of me I cannot hear the breakout in the music. It's just not on the same scale as say Nirvana or Pearl Jam - who did crack an opening in contemporary approaches to music. However, as one wise old musician once said to me 'Music is music - if you relate to it you relate to it.' So, if it's important to you and you relate to it - then embrace it - just don't expect me to hop on the waggon. BTW - I'm not much of a fan of Nirvana or Pearl Jam either...but I recognize and acknowledge their sizeable contributions to contemporary music.
