"Shelter From The Storm"

Music, sweet, sweet music. From Bob Dylan to Bob Marley, from Elvis Presley to Elvis Costello, from Billie Holiday to Billy Bragg, from Chuck Berry to Chuck D, from John Lennon to John Prine, and, yes, even from Leonard Cohen to Lynyrd Skynyrd, music makes the world go round. From Blind Willie Johnson to Robert Johnson, from Roger Waters to Muddy Waters, from Hank Williams to Lucinda Williams, and from Neil Young to Angus Young, music makes a bad day better and a good day perfect. From The Stones to Stevie, from Kurt to Kanye, from Aretha to Al, from Joni to Jimi, from Otis to OutKast, from Marvin to Miles, and from Cash to The Clash, music simply inspires. From "Like A Hurricane" to "Like A Rolling Stone" and from Ella Fitzgerald to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", music makes every situation a whole lot better. Yes, it's true, music has most definitely been one of the great passions of my life.
