these were some of my favorites:

P.J Harvey--Virginia Woolf

Jewel--Danielle Steele

Nirvana--William Burroughs

Radiohead--Franz Kafka

Wilco--Mark Twain

The Cocteau Twins -- Anais Nin (M.E.: ethereal, sensual, fever dreamish)

The Wedding Present/Emily Bronte (Wuthering Heights)
Unrequited love, suffering, love, hate and anger all in equal measure."

Sex Pistols—Irvine Welsh

Nick Drake--Sylvia Plath

Ian Curtis--J. D. Salinger

Guided By Voices--Dave Eggers (Salvatore: unmistakable talent
who run their own label/publishing house; both are
criticized of needing an editor) (NICE ONE!!! –Ed.)

The Minutemen--Nick Hornby

Fun! I'm embarrassed to say, I only know about 30% of the writers and musicians listed. ;D

Anne- I agree with kelly, it looks like fun, but I can see this as something else I could easily spend my time thinking about instead of my writing. ahhhh! lol

I think Radiohead would go better with William Gibson.

They both have an etheral, post-present take on the world.

And I think that Nirvana and Burroughs are together only because Cobain did backing for a spoken word album by B.

Interesting and mindboggling.
