What I meant to say:

Crazy shit, Mike. I thought this started out like Bernstein & Sondheim's "West Side Story" - my favourite musical of all time, I hasten to add - and then it seemed to rocket off into George Lucas territory.

And to think I played Bowie's vinyl "Heroes" into early retirement!

I need to see West Side Story again. I think it is coming to Broadway, actually. I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

Brush off Heroes! We are celebrating Germany this week, apparently. Must be Octoberfest.

"West Side Story" works best as a film, I feel; but then I never have been too fond of theatre, although I frequent quite a few shows in my teenage years and early twenties.

I still listen to "Heroes" quite a bit, but more often than not just Side 2 these days.
