    How is it that Jim isn't in Patti Smith's station? Or Richard Hell's? Last.Fm, literary rock&roll is a sub genre. It tends to cross over itself but hey, bfd. I worship his music as well as respecting, relating to, and loving his poetry. Huge loss for NYC and the rest of the world. RIP Jim. I thank you, as well.
