Taking A Moment to Boast About My Brother

Being Jewish, I have to take a moment to boast (or kvell, if I really want to be Jewish about it) about my brother Elijah. As those of you who regularly follow this blog may already know, Elijah is a musician and music historian who has published a number of books over the years about various musicians (Dave van Ronk, Robert Johnson) and musical genres. He has a new book coming out next week, with the provocative title How the Beatles Destroyed Rock'N'Roll. The book just got a prominent mention in ... NEWSWEEK! Now that's "making it"!! Now you see what I'm up against. How to compete in a family like this?? If any of you can help me get on Oprah, please give me a call....
