Frankie man, I been held up. Them damn kids and their education keep distracting me. Fact is, I got not much to say about copywrite law and I said my piece about Israel a long time ago. When the bombs start falling on Iran, I'll be right back atchya, but at the moment, all is status quo.

For what its worth, I with you on the drugs. Curious indeed how the legit stuff seems to kill just as many pop-stars. . .

My live political talk radio show on the Internet starts in 15 minutes (7 p.m. Pacific, 10 p.m. Eastern).

Listen to live streaming audio on the site and call in on our toll-free number to air your opinions, whether it's the religious right's attempt to boycott Starbucks for supporting gay marriage, the U.S. Army Staff Sgt. facing 17 counts of murder for massacre-ing Afghan civilians, the GOP primary, or The Hunger Games:

War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

The sound of the Sarangi has been called the "soul" of Indian music because of its crying singing tone. It's a monster instrument to learn (you fret with your cuticles) and has been largely obscured in the modern age by the violin which was introduced to India by the British in the 17th century.

Here are some rare recordings from the early 20th century master Bundu Khan.

A modern master who died recently-

I was fortunate to see Ustad Sultan Khan perform several years ago. There are still younger players but like many beautiful things in this world it is always on the edge of passing away.

You better not be saying that that was a bad version of Billie Jean? Veloso is universally hailed. Watch it.

Definitely like Michael Franks. Very unique sound texture to his music.

Cris covered Tell Me All About It on her second CD.

Veloso's version of Billie Jean is masterful. Fuck with it. Boxing stance.
