Frame by frame, a series of shots put together to capture this story of stealing their thunder by taking over their acts at lightning speed.

There is place for me in this historical tapestry, in the upper right corner, just above the Beatles. And so I write words, words that I have heard, a jumble of notes, these words are not mine. And so it … Continue reading
