A SOBER ASSESSMENT
See this excellent article on how George Harrison (the only born Catholic Beatle, BTW) was an apostate and hypocritical about it. Obviously I do like a lot of his music (I have and listen to All Things Must Pass on beat-up vinyl), and the sincerity and bits of truth in his Hare Krishna-derived acquired faith, but understand why others think his songs are dreary, and factoring out my pro-George bias can agree with Joe Sobran’s assessment: nice guy, competent musician but (except for a few brilliant songs that deservedly are pop standards now) overall a mediocre songwriter.
- БЕЛЫЙ ОСТРОГ/THE TWO SIBERIANS
These Moscow-based guys originally from Irkutsk ROCK! Part Russian folk, part classical, part American country, part rock — sometimes peaceful but never boring. Don’t let the acoustic guitar and electric violin fool you — this isn’t sleepy Windham Hill-style New Age. Artjom Yakushenko can make his T-bone violin wail like a rock guitar solo, and the guitar in the hands of Yuri Matveyev is like a machine gun, a mandolin, or a домра, depending on the song. They could be the Two Guys from Hackensack, NJ and they’d still rock, but a little Russian soul doesn’t hurt.

‘Love doctor’ Helen Fisher, an anthropologist with lots of common sense, explains our age-old courtship games and how and why people fall in and out of love (the seven-year itch is more like four years — Scott Peck wrote the same thing). I’ve been saying for some time that lust and desire (romantic love) are completely different feelings — now it’s scientifically proven! (Different chemical cocktails in the brain.) And forget feminism here — women call most of the shots in courting — and in relationships in general? — but they also go for strong, confident men who can take care of them.
