Re: Happy Birthday Mark

If only Mark actually read this message board...

Happy Birthday, you've undeniably made an impact on a lot of lives. Every day you've lived has created infinite days of happiness in people you've never even met. Here's to another 44 years, thanks Mark.

Re: Happy Birthday Mark

In an article in The Word magazine this month entitled "Whatever Happened to Singing?" a number of columnists and musicians pick one singer who does it for them

Rob Fitzpatrick wrote :

When I heard (Mark) Kozelek's first band, Red House Painters, it was the purity of his voice that gripped me. Nineteen years later, that voice is still the yardstick I measure every other group by. Here, on Glenn Tipton, one of his most beautiful songs with Sun Kil Moon, Kozelek plays with phrasing from the very first line, making wavering leaps across his register ("Just like my dad did....") at 0.54, ushers in a brilliantly keening ache ("Place aint the same no more...") at 2.06 and pulls off a spectacular, unrehearsable bluegrass wobble ("I never heard her calls again...")-just the once-at 3.28. Now that's singing.

Nice tribute to the birthday boy.

PS anybody know what song this is? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRm6E-gOp5M
