With all the comments about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (How many Van Halens can fit on the head of a pin, does REM or Patti Smith deserve it,who cares about it, bla, bla, bla etc.) did anyone else notice that Patti Smith thanked her crew by name including our friend Yik Wong and said “Without our crew we are nothing” and not one of those stiffs clapped or hooted?

Most of those people at the event can’t get a box of free CDs into their Range Rover without the help of a personal assistant or two.

Bravo Patti. Congrats to you and thanks for a great speech.

The rest of you… does your drink on stage taste funny?

Sleep tight.
