Orson Nietes vs Andrew G.
Confession: I have to admit I'm a bit of a Mr.Welles fan (still reading two very detailed volumes of his story by Simon Callow, I'm at the point that he's reaching for his xanadu, Citizen Kane). The moustache shows that even a goofball like me can have a Welles or a Nietes day. We all have dreams and goals.
Andrew Gold had a dream I guess. He was a master in playing many instruments and wrote very versatile, melodic songs. I've got a weakness for songwriters in general. He wrote so many beautiful songs that his memory will forever linger on, even though he's not here anymore....Lonely Boy, That's Why I Love You, Passing Thing, Never Let Her Slip Away, Thank You For Being A Friend, Genevieve, are on the jukebox. Californication complete...I'm in Xanadu now.
