and the Times piece doesn't get it either. They're showing us only the first 100 of each letter so when the writer wonders aloud how many Black Flag or Clash albums he had, the answer is we'll never know.....we'll only likely see band that start with the letters "Ba...." and "Ca...." Still, it's pretty cool.

Yup. It took me a while to figure that out... I was like, this is all he had in A?

Well, if we can't get Clash, at least we can get Cash!

Will, he was know only by record collectors who read magazines and in bought "Peel Sessions" LPs of rare live in the studio tracks of all the coolest bands. Well known though he is certainly not. I know him because i own a specialist record shop. In my world everyone knows him. People passing on the street have no idea who he is.

In the UK he was an institution. The range of his music tastes and the sheer number of bands that he "broke" (first played in the UK) was totally amazing.

Here in the US, I'm not sure if there are many who were aware of him. Personally, he ranks high to me since he was a supporter/promoter of my favorite avant garde artist: Captain Beefheart (aka Don VanVliet). May they both continue to rock on in the heavenly realms!

I just saw a documentary about Cpt Beefheart a bit ago. Sounds like quite the character!

Welcome to the forum, by the way!
