Scoff Not

August 27, 1995

Jennifer Trynin is undoubtedly a talent ("Go Ahead, Make Her Day," by Elysa Gardner, Aug. 20). But her scoffing at comparisons to Chrissie Hynde and other female rockers (while she embraces those who compare her to Keith Richards) reeks of its own brand of sexism.

And what about her statement "I have no interest in autobiographical blah"? Doesn't she know that all art reveals something of the artist? And since the human experience is universal, all art is in some ways derivative?

Trynin might take a lesson from Jerry Garcia. Trying to be cool is not the same as embodying it.
