Cheers for Spears

A "rock star" writes an open letter to Britney Spears

It seems to me that whenever the radio gets clogged up with hyper-slick, over-marketed, commercial Top 10 music, something always comes along to upset the apple cart. In the 1950s, it was Elvis Presley; in the '70s, it was the Sex Pistols and punk; in the '90s, it was Nirvana. These little musical revolutions hog the spotlight until their momentum is watered down by a glut of soundalike impostors who quickly lose the plot, and then things tend to revert to the bottom line: what's shifting units. Well, shift away, Britney. I'll probably play your song a few more times before I never want to hear it again. Put on a good show for the kids, will you? Don't keep them out too late. I'm probably gonna stay home that night and read a book, but I'll remember to include you in my prayers.

Hugs and kisses,

T. Erich Scholz

Scholz, occasionally known as Jody Powerchurch, is the bassist for The Tomorrowpeople.
