Enought already! Okay, so Lou had some problems with being kicked out by J – but some innocent fantasy about SNL really is no reason to start bashing him. I saw Lou in Amsterdam this year, and he was great. Or just listen to his songs on Harmacy – songs so pure and honest that your heart almost breaks just listening to them.

And I prefer "Where you been" to anything else, but it’s really not true that J’s music "improved vastly" after Lou left. "You’re living all over me" is a brilliant album, and Lou played bass on it.

So Lou whines? God! Half of pop music is guys whining that either: 1) They are lonely 2)They were lonely yesterday 3) They will be lonely tomorrow. What did you think J is doing? He could be the king of whiners (and that’s exactly why I love his music so much). "Why won’t you be my friend, I would love to hold you tonight even if we just pretend." Good music is all about whining, and as long as it’s done in pureness and honesty, that’s just great.
