Moser Should Attend Shows He Comments On

RECEIVED Wed., Sept. 2, 2009

Dear Editor,
    Regarding the “After a Fashion” commentary on Debbie Harry which appeared in the Aug. 28 edition: It should be stated that if Stephen Moser or I had done a solid 60-plus minute set that nearly brought down the house at the Austin Music Hall, in record-breaking summer Texas heat that we were unaccustomed to, and happened to be 64 years old, I would think we would both be thrilled to look half as good as Debbie Harry did in the Gary Miller photo which was published in Moser's column. Perhaps this photo should have been taken at the beginning of Blondie's power-packed set, rather than near the end. Or maybe Moser could be bothered to actually attend the shows that he is commenting on.
