From NPR: Lifer Bands: Staying A Fan Through Thick And Thin : The Record : NPR

Good article-it only scratches the surface with this band-I gave their Cds for Christmas. Some day I will write a volume or two on this, one of the greatest American rock bands ever:


Lifer Bands: Staying A Fan Through Thick And Thin : The Record : NPR: "The other day, a student at the university where I sometimes teach was telling me about his informal cultural education. You know, the important extracurricular part of college: the pop culture you get into because finally you're on your own, staying up late, ruling the remote and your dorm sound system. No parents to tell you to turn it down, no little sister downloading Avalon High on the kitchen computer just when you planned to watch Dr. Who. Sweet!

This particular kid is a cultural binge-drink"
