The New York Times has a great article up about rock music critic Jane Scott. She died today at 92. I want to mention it on this site because Scott is an excellent example of how music can change your life. At the age of 45 she covered her first rock show. Four guys calling themselves The Beatles. That show changed her world.
She found her lifework on Sept. 15, 1964, the day four lads from Liverpool came to Cleveland. No one at the paper was interested in covering the Beatles, and Ms. Scott volunteered.
That night, amid a sea of screams, Ms. Scott was transformed. “I realized this was a phenomenon,” she told The Plain Dealer in 2002. “The whole world changed.”
Check out the article. It’s a worthy read.
