Adolf Kowalski's "Maryland Musician" Column

Back in the '80s, I used to love reading Adolf Kowalski's column in Maryland Musician. I used to clip 'em and save 'em each month, but can't seem to find any these days. I think they were discovered by the stink bugs and squirrels in my attic who lacked an appreciation of fine literature (except as snacks). I did manage to salvage this column from 1988 called "It's the Little Things or Kiss My Axe," wherein Adolf says you don't have to have some tricked-up Guitar Magazine-lauded superguitar to be superbad; anything will do as long as it's got six strings. (I was gonna say, "and know how to play," but Half Japanese dispelled that fallacy!)

time warp, this brings me back. was this boomer wallflower reporting, channeling rimbaud in the voice of lester bangs, or vice versa? don't answer that, answer this: tommy boy, there must be another way of writing you than this.
send an email, not a fb-bot, to turim in seattle.
if you read this. if you don't, well, don't.
