Her Musical Hero, Dave Alvin

September 17, 2006

I was listening to "West of the West" when I opened my Sunday Times to find the brief interview with Dave Alvin by Barbara Isenberg ("'West of the West,'" Aug. 27). On every record, Alvin brilliantly captures not only what's been lost in California, but also the great beauty that remains.

He elicits thoughtful reflection and pure rock 'n' roll joy. I count him among my musical heroes. That he is a native Californian only reinforces the notion about how cool our state really is.
