My sentiments exactly! Plus points for Soul Asylum for knowing exactly
the problem in the art industry. Thank you for sharing this, CrazyLittleWoman (and BTW, I just finished my midterm exams, thank you for your concern).

I like to believe I'd have gotten into Soul Asylum regardless, but it's really hard to say. my life might be completely different today...
Oh I know the feeling, Phil, since the feeling of discovering SA is still fresh in me. I can say exactly that I would never
have gotten into Soul Asylum, and music in general, if not for their fleeting moment in the limelight.
It definitely changed my life - or my perspective in life. It's really different to be an active follower on a certain artist, or a certain kind of music, as opposed to be just a passive listener of music. It is really a dull life to catch a favorite tune in the radio for a split second then forgetting everything about, not even knowing who wrote the song and who performed them. For me, discovering Soul Asylum also opened a gateway in me that appreciates the alternative rock scene, which I would never know existed otherwise.

Where are you, Jakob? I'm beginning to miss you...
