Anne New York City  :
What is the procedure for deciding which musicians get to use this column to promote their songs and albums for free? I mean I learned nothing from this except that some guy with a fake/joke Korean name was a Led Zeppelin fan (along with 100 million other people) and recorded an album that references one of their songs. Why are you even tagging this “Led Zeppelin.” – “The Song Remains the Same (and Kind of Blue)”, Mark Kozelek, NY Times, 1/28/14

    Clearly Anne from NY’s salient point that valuable NY Times space was wasted on an artist trying to articulate what his new evocative song was about should be taken up by the papers ombudsman. The idea that the Times would give Kozelek room to riff about Zeppelin and childhood memories is an insult to all readers, especially when there is still important muckraking journalism to be done on Macklemore and his post Grammy tweets!
