Recently my friend Gary Harris, who happens to be a former EMI A&R exec, has been criticized and bashed by several fans and other outlets on the web. One who introduced me to the music of D’Angelo back in 1992 prior to it’s release while I was at WBLS, he wrote an open letter to the artist, expressing a personal point of view.

When I first saw a poster for Stephen King’s new book “Joyland” in the subways of New York, I said, ‘Is that a new movie?,’ because of how bold the colors were and the way it’s advertised. One quickly realizes it’s a poster for his new book at second glance, but it immediately made me wonder — will it be a movie? A reader of his works and one who’s enjoyed most of the films adapted from his books, I had to investigate.
