Stewart's talent was apparent to my ears as early as his appearance on the two Jeff Beck albums he sang on.  Around the turn of the century he did seem to have a vocal node issue. And he has 8 kids by 3 wives and other liaisons. He has obvious reasons to try to extend his career as long as possible.  That said, it's hard to reconcile his early talent and his later career.  I am reminded of Elvis and his career moves.  At least he didn't attempt to become a film star.

So the question remains open:  in his great four-album run in the early '70s -- one of the best runs by anyone ever, maybe THE best -- was Rod putting one over on us?

I still like this one from around the time he was starting that solo career.

I'm listening to a lot of Wilhelm Kempff Schubert.

Some of my favorite music in the world.

So Kempff.  He got a lot of shit from New York critics back in the day.  But they were technocrats:  his style of playing didn't dazzle, didn't call enough attention to what the player's fingers were doing.

But to me, this is EXACTLY how this music -- deep and interior, but lyrical -- should sound.

I think the same about his late Brahms.

Beethoven, now that's a house with many mansions.

But this Schubert:  I'm in absoule heaven.

It may seem preposterous that John Lydon is seeking to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest, but his song is actually rather touching. It's inspired by caring for his wife, now suffering from Alzheimer's.

My CD player died.

Since I'm too lazy to deal with vinyl, that leaves me with streaming radio.

I figured that since Bayerischer Rundfunk has what any sentient person would have to agree is the best radio symphony orchestra in the world, it would be a good station to listen to on its classical channel.

So I'm listening to the same radio channel @Behemoth could be.

I'm sure she isn't.  But she could be.

So now on the BR channel they're having this conversation about Beckmesser in Meistersinger as a Jewish stereotype.  I can only understand enough to make me wish I could understand more.
