“There was no YouTube, no MySpace, no TMZ. In the ’60s and early ’70s, most artists weren’t willing to ‘ho’ to get their fifteen minutes of fame. Peoples’ lives were not an open book, their foibles not public property. We did our fair share of debauchery, but there was nobody there trying to film it.” Is this the first time I sort of agree with one Mr. Don Henley ever? It very well may be! (Although the whole boomer-exceptionalist bit does, naturally, rankle more than a bit.) [Star-Telegram; HT Reed Fischer]
