    Wonderful column, Mr. Bader. My only additional comment would be where you described the music as "comfortable," I would have added the word "decent" either before or after it.

    As a student of music in the mid-70's, we learned much of what you describe as to the success of Lawrence Welk and his very talented band. What many don't understand even today is that the rock and roll of that era incorporated the very elements of melody, harmony and rhythm.

    That's not to infer that some of what is being written today are absent these absolutes of music, but with the advent of low-cost audio equipment and the ease of uploading various tracks onto the Internet for widespread dissemination to the masses, too many self-proclaimed "musicians" are hardly that at all (the other evening’s Grammy Awards “ceremony” bears this out in my opinion). But to each his or her own as we also believed when I was much younger with much longer (but not necessarily fuller) hair.
