JEFF BAXTER MAY BE MORE FAMOUS THAN MOST, BUT HE’S FAR FROM THE ONLY MUSICIAN WHO HAS OTHER TALENTS (OR WHOSE TALENTS HAVE TRANSLATED TO OTHER AREAS)
I saw a link to this Business Insider article on Instapundit. Even if you don’t have any interest in the substance, go there to see a great photo of Jeff "Skunk" Baxter standing behind the president, who is standing next to another (less accomplished, in my opinion) musician.
I have known a number of musicians (none of whom were as famous as Skunk Baxter, I admit) who not only had tremendous talent as musicians, but were also amazing talents in other areas. It’s impossible to tell for certain, of course, but I think the qualities that made those individuals great musicians were, in most cases, the same qualities that made them able to excel in other disciplines. In other words, their talents translated to other disciplines. I think that explains how Skunk was able to become an expert in missile defense. And while his comments in the Business Insider article don’t exactly say that, I think that’s what he meant.
I’ll get to writing about the Music Modernization Act (which is the reason Skunk was with the president) as soon as I know more about it.
