How could you possibly print a picture of Joe Strummer in a refrigerator ("Strummer on Man, God, Law--and the Clash," by Richard Cromelin, Jan. 31)? Are you completely unaware of the large number of children each year who lose their lives by suffocating in locked refrigerators. Now you have given any child who sees this article a new game to play: "Lets imitate our favorite rock star!" They don't even have to be old enough to read. All that is necessary is for the paper to be left open on the table.

"Tell me your name, tell me your story," Diego Garcia sings in his best sweep-you-off-your-feet croon. On Elefant's debut album "Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid," the New York band crafts a sound that's sultry, spare and sexy, to frame the seductions of its charismatic, Argentina- born singer. The vibe might be more fashion runway than rock-club stage, but from Elvis to the Doors to Bowie to the Police, rock has always had a place for hot music behind a cool dude.

Regarding "The Solitary Outsider," by Richard Cromelin (April 4): Dwight Yoakam as the James Dean of country music? C'mon. James Dean was honest. I'll buy Yoakam when he takes off that g.d. hat (if he's a byproduct of his dad's pompadour with the Vitalis curl, we'd like to see it) and stops yodeling every second word of a lyric. Rather than Dean, he sounds more like Woody Allen with all that pretentious, pseudo-psychological, self-analysis. Anyone who would wear his hat during a Whoopi Goldberg interview needs more therapy than he can give himself.

The touted British invasion of the Grammy Awards didn't turn out too well on Sunday, as most of the high-profile English nominees, such as James Blunt and Corinne Bailey Rae, went home from Staples Center empty-handed. There's no such problems with the Brit Awards, whose main honors are reserved for British acts.
