The Homo Superior

Warning. This is going to get maudlin. I didn’t write about David Bowie on Monday. Not much. I shared some songs with other fans who were grieving. I posted errant comments about this video, that concert, this picture, that memory. But I didn’t write anything. I didn’t even think about writing anything. It was like […]

BWG Interview with Keaton Simons

BWG Interview with Keaton Simons

Interview by Cindy Donaghue. With a resume of performing for dignataries at the UN, acting in popular TV shows, collaborating with main-stream musicians like Jason Mraz, ¬†Gnarls Barkley, Black Eyed Peas, and Coldplay, and even lending his image for an Xbox game, you’d think Keaton Simons would be one of those unapproachable artists who doesn’t […]
