I very much enjoyed reading D. T. Baker’s interesting and well-thought out commentary on the cover of my recently released CD. I am finding all of this controversy amusing, but quite unnecessary. I am responding to this one to try to get a few things straight.
First of all (or rather, the only thing that seems to concern him), the cover photo. I was 24 years old when this photo was taken, very far from the adolescence I am accused of portraying. The photo on the inside was taken three years earlier, so apparently I am, according to his commentary, in the enviable position of looking younger as I age. I do not think that I look so terribly young in the cover photo, and if that is the opinion of others, it is beyond my control.
