As an artist, close friend and neighbor of Charlie Minor, I wanted to go on record that he was one of the most sincere and caring people that I ever met--not only in the music industry, but in my life ("Death of a Salesman," by Hugo Martin, Sept. 24). As many were, I was devastated to hear the news of his death in March and recently dedicated my album "Carved in Stone" to Charlie because of our friendship. Yes, he was "flamboyant" . . . he was "extravagant" . . . but most of all he really cared about people and was just out to have a good time.

Rock 'n' roll--with its history of payola scandals and drug casualties--is a ripe target for a TV screenwriter, but the rock 'n' roll world portrayed on TV's "Wiseguy" series is little more than an out-of-date comic book. At least that's what numerous record industry veterans think after seeing the first two episodes in the CBS cop show's seven-part dramatization of life in the rock world.
