ETHERIDGE CLEARS THE AIR
Were you following this tempest in a teacup?
Melissa Etheridge was recently quoted in Rolling Stone in a way that gave readers a bad impression of guitarist Phil Keaggy. The quote made it sound like Keaggy had once made a disparaging remark about Etheridge’s sexual orientation, a remark that steered her clear of pursuing a career in Christian music.
And now, Etheridge has spoken to clear the whole matter up. That was a gracious gesture, and I’m pleased to see that this is wrapping up nicely. I hope everyone who read the Rolling Stone story sees this.

Looks like John Woo might be staging a major comeback. His sweeping, two-part epid Red Cliff sounds amazing.
Name the singer/songwriter who said, “I hate a song that makes you think that you’re not any good. … Songs that run you down or songs that poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or your hard traveling. I am out to fight those kinds of songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood.”
