Think of the striking portraits of Abraham Lincoln or Ulysses S. Grant: is it possible in this day and age that we will have a woman president sooner than a bearded one? (And, while we're on the subject, do you think we will ever have a bearded lady as president?)
Not that Dave Davies, the other Dave Davies. He was subbing for Terry Gross on Fresh Air. I caught the tail end of his interview with John Madden. Not that John Madden, the other John Madden. They commiserated with one another on sharing names with big, famous celebrities.
Dave DaviesAnd then I walk into my building and these two guys down the hall from me are blasting the Kinks' Village Green Preservation Society.
"If you Google my name, the first 9,000 hits will be the lead guitarist for the Kinks."
"I don't even know quite what he looks like, but I know he doesn't look like me. He's rather larger than me, isn't he?"
