Josef Albers said this - and for your information (and mine) he was an artist I'd never heard of until three minutes ago - shame on me.

I was listening to Desert Island Discs on Sunday and the castaway was a climber called Conrad Anker -whose website heading is 'be good. be kind. be happy.' so he's definitely a soul-mate.
He swept me away with his words and his choice of music until...I had a slight wobble when he introduced an updated version of 'Old Man' by Neil Young, performed by a group (person?) called Redlight King
SACRILEGE! I thought.
Until I heard it.
Members of the jury, please examine Exhibit A.
AND it introduces Neil Young to a whole new generation.
SO - there is art in reviveal at least sometimes.
