Rock: Dead or Alive?

How saddened I was to read about Bill Graham's untimely death in the same issue in which Hilburn quotes him on the condition of the rock business and to hear that he was already planning a benefit for the scorched people of Oakland.

Graham was a remarkable man in many ways. I personally will miss his interesting entrances to the stage every New Year's Eve in San Francisco when the Grateful Dead would be playing live.

Should they decide to rename the annual music awards, I submit "Grahamies" for your approval.
