irony as history

FT + New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 608 views

inducting j.hendrix and b.dylan into the UK Rock Hall of Fame, the powers-that-institutionalise opted for STARS OF TODAY doing cover versions: slash (plus a winwood and some now-rotund jimi sidemen) for the former, alanis morisette for the latter

and he wz careful and serious and strangely polite really; and she wz bright-eyed and amused and comfy — and the latter worked a lot better, for the (deeply absurd) situation

UPDATE: bah, 25 years have not improved love will tear us apart; it is still JD’s worst song, weighed down by by the inadequacies of its singer then and its singer now, both of them better than OK on other songs, but hapless and crummy on this morose, structurally half-formed sales-pitch wettie
