The boy who blooked

This is really remarkable. One of the greatest rock icons of all of our generations, Pete Townshend, has a blog. Pete Townshend is blogging. And, he's allowing comments. Pete Townshend is blogging and he's taking comments. The concept is truly overwhelming.

He set up a blog for the purpose of publishing his novella, "The Boy Who Heard Music." There will be 23 installments, ending on February 25, 2006.

By doing this, he has made himself approachable and accessible to everyone on the planet. That's what's remarkable.

Side note advice: Reciting, "I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven," gives one the upper hand in defusing certain volatile situations. Go ahead, try it. It works.

Found at Rachel Fuller's blog. She's a musician and singer and Townshend's woman. And, she has freely given some of her recordings away to her blog readers. I like her voice.
