25902: Severe (reply) to post 25892 Miami Herald Article on Radio DJ (fwd)
From: Constantin Severe <email@example.com>
I have to admit to being floored by the Herald article on Alain Maximilien.
Growing up in the Haitian Shetls of Miami and Brooklyn I can't think of any of
my friends who liked rock music much less punk, besides myself. I'm slightly
younger than Mr. Hillbilly and the only halfway acceptable rock music among my
set of friends was Aerosmith, and that was because they did a proto rap/rock
version of "Walk This Way." They couldn't even be bothered with Compas, it was
all R&B/rap all the time.That always struck me as weird since our parents had
broader taste of music, a little Benny More here/a little Nemours there.
