Every month, GP Managing Editor Kevin Owens will pick the most interesting, inspiring, humorous, snotty, honest, and/or confounding piece of feedback, cheese it as “Letter of the Month,” and send the lucky winner a snazzy GP t-shirt. In addition, this month’s winner will receive a box (12 sets) of Dunlop Strings (acoustic or electric, winner’s choice of gauge and type)!
Your April issue was amazing. It was my second-favorite issue of GP ever (number one is Feb. 1997), and I will keep it in my collection. Dave Rubin rocks for getting Magic Sam’s West Side Soul included. I beg your young readers to buy this CD. I learned how to play guitar in 1967, because of people like Hendrix and Bloomfield. I gave up playing in the late ’70s, but after a chance listening to West Side Soul in ’95, I started playing again, and this time I will go ’til I drop.Jerry Rosen, Via Internet
I was aghast to see such a frivolous letter (April 07’s Letter of the Month) highlighted in your publication. You have a responsibility to your readers to be thoughtful. You reach a population that tends to have weak coping skills, as music is frequently the only outlet they have for expression. Your base is comprised of many isolated and perhaps at-risk people, and clearly rewarding such a ludicrous statement is not only in bad form, but devalues the worth of life.Dr. Beverly A.
