Re: “Vocal exorcist

Eugene Lewis is more amazing than you can imagine. He is so talented that if you have the chance to know him, you will be blown away by what he can do. He is not only a genius, but somebody that can understand and communicate with everyone, across borders. His musical understanding goes far beyond anyone I have ever met in all areas. He is the music whisperer!

Re: “Not vanilla

Paleface is the opposite of racism... Truly, humble dudes who derogatorily are called Crackers, Wiggers & Honkies because of their love & admiration for Rap & Hip-Hop. The difference here & to be completely/brutaly honest is they embrace their whiteness. Paleface got love for all races, colors, creed & social/economic standings. 1 Love, Keep it 1000!!! #FreeFate

Re: “Acting his age

Mr. Goddard made a lasting impression on little po-dunk Montana. I am incredibly lucky to have been one of his students. He taught more about life than English or drama. He showed me that there is life outside of the "nowhere" I grew up. Because of his instruction, I have Speech and Drama medals, and a 3rd place plack hanging in the high school that I earned at the state competition by myself. (He had horrible luck calling a coin toss or it would have been second place)
He is a great teacher, and because of his dedication hundreds of students learned that there is so much more in life than the concerns of a small town in the middle of nowhere. I am not sure if I (or anyone) ever thanked him for being such an important influence with the youth he taught. "Young" is how you think, act, perceive the world around you. I can't think of any better way to describe one of the best teachers ever to stimulate the grey matter of everyone he ever crossed paths with, than just that: "Young". I can't think of any better compliment for such a great man.

My name is Stephanie Campbell and I have spoken to this beautiful goddess Eugene, and I truly believe in him. He has a soulful heart that can not be denied. We need more heartfelt people like him. I'm glad I met you.

Re: “Anti-fame

Shmed- First, congratulations to you and your family for "making it" in a very competitive business. I am no musician and I do not clam to be one. With the research that I have compiled it is obvious that your have earned your success.

I do have an issue with you claiming to be Denis's "best friend". I knew Denis well. I worked with Denis every day for 2 years up until he died. He worked around children and loved them. He coached a girls basketball team won a championship, something he was very proud of. He shared his music with the students at the school and saw the "other side of life". The same one you seem to be enjoying with your wife and children.

Did you know any of this?

The day Denis died I knocked on his sister's door and watched her screaming in the horror that comes with suicide. To this day we still share a friendship that started with her brother Denis. Each person is different and I will not pass judgement on you in the same way that you seem to have on Denis and his family.

Denis died 10 years ago. He was talented, just like you. He was human and had issues, just like all of us. Please don't use your success as a forum to make judgements on people that you claim to know. In the two years that I worked with Denis I never met you. I was at his funeral (you may have been there, maybe not). I've visited his grave. I cry when I hear his music.

I believe that you did not mean to spark the emotions that you did but there are people that loved Denis and are still on this earth that take offense to some of that comments that you have made. A simple apology would go a long way.

Re: “Proving his metal

This guy is my new Missoula hero. He does radio, plays metal punk, listens to hip-hop, but most importantly: has the balls to do stand-up comedy. Amateur comedians can be a cringe-fest of bad puns and improperly told stories, but I'm curious to see what Missoula has to offer at The Union...

Re: “2012 Arts in review

Well, I for one, must applaud you for your love of the arts and its practitioners in Missoula. We are a very lucky community to have so much on the theatre/music/dance/fine arts scene(s). However, I WOULD like to point out that The University of Montana was BRIEFLY mentioned, nothing about the Downtown Dance Collective or the Ballet Arts Academy, neglected the On Center Performing Art Academy's kids and their arts contributions, and there was NIL about either the Missoula Children's Theatre or the Missoula Community Theatre. I can guarantee you that the arts community in Missoula would be far less than what it is without the amazing contributions of these incredible organizations. You recognized people who should have been, true. However, you should have tried harder to recognize more.

Re: “Power to the people

This book is a definite buy on my list. It sounds like Patrick Lee knows what really went on in this horrific loss to the city of Butte MT. I have read the other two books and am looking forward to reading this latest novel. Excellent write up - interesting read!!

Re: “Lost in transcendence

i used to defend dylan against those who said they liked his lyrics, but just couldn't handle his voice. i loved the mumbled masters of war he did at the grammys in 1991 or so. all the vocal variations he's been through over the years - i've dug them. but now - his voice bugs me. this article nails it. when dylan comes to my town, i don't know whether i'm going to the show....and i've seen him about 16 times since 1995. wtf, indeed.

Re: “Lost in transcendence

I agree with some mixture of all of these posts. Much of the time he does spit out lyrics too fast-lots of pauses between phrases, then rushing through the next phrase. Since nearly everything he does is deliberate, I wonder what his purpose is? I remember thinking his voice was worn out when I heard it in 1994, then again in 1999, but now I find his vocals from those years vibrant and expressive. Maybe eventually I'll appreciate his post-2004 vocals, but it's a bit hard to imagine, as the original post said. As for off-tune, I think the note he can't reach in I Believe in You qualifies as off key. Other than that, I'd agree that it's inaccurate to call him off-key. Oh, for a few tender-voiced ballads sung solo on stage with just his acoustic guitar. That would be a treat, raspy voice or not.
