Scary that they found Barry Cowsill 4 months after the event.

Lou Rawls had that authentic gospel sound we don't hear much anymore in popular music.

Peter's been tripping over the Barry Cowsill story since he heard about it. I guess the Cowsills were a really white trash family (I didn't know too much about them, although I do remember them from Tiger Beat and 16 magazines when I was a kid). Peter was really struck by the fact that this guy had been missing for months on end, but you never heard anything about it. Like, I guess his 15 minutes really came and went.

I was sad to hear about Lou Rawls. :(
