Those Who Forget The Past

I had one of these t-shirts, I got it at a RUN-DMC/Grandmaster Flash and The Furious 5 concert in the summer of 1985. I last wore mine, I believe, around Ft. Greene in Brooklyn during the summer of 1987, when the hostile looks got to be a little too disconcerting. But now you can buy it at Old Navy. I’m not sure what that means . . .

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
