So the guy is marrying Diana Krall...okay, and he just got into the R&R Hall of Fame...alright, and When I Was Cruel was a really good album....yeah, but does he have any fans HERE?

My vote is for Watching the Detectives....but Blue Chair, American Without Tears and Episode of Blonde are right up there...

...go ahead folks...

I've always liked "Let Him Dangle." If memory serves, it was on "Spike." OTOH, it's hard not to like "Pump it Up." My buddies on our high school basketball team convinced the administators to let them play the song full-blast while they did pre-game warm-ups. When a lot of people were still listening to stuff like Toto, it really threw some people for a loop: especially the opposing teams' parents.

Saw him last summer on the When I Was Cruel tour. Amazing. He was the "Artist in Residence" at UCLA until recently.

Useless Beauty is a great song.
Imperial Bedroom is wonderful.Sintesi

Great great lyrics. Peak moment for him. Beyond Belief is a great song on it.
