Steve Hochman's tribute to the late Beach Boy Carl Wilson was quite moving and warmly written ("The Emotional--and Artistic--Anchor," Feb. 8). I would like to take exception to one comment. Hochman indicated that Carl had become involved with Christine McVie. In fact, it was Dennis Wilson. DENNIS O'CONNOR Port Monmouth, N.J.

"How many times can Buffett make the same album?" asks Steve Hochman in last Sunday's Record Rack. In reply I ask, "How many times can the Los Angeles Times and its Robert Hilburn clones write the same review for Jimmy Buffett?" Having heard the new CD "Banana Wind" several times, I beg to differ with Hochman. If Jimmy Buffett's music is so bad, then why does he continue to be one of the biggest if not the biggest concert act year after year? The sound that Jimmy makes is for the masses who want a little peace in their lives and a dream to follow as well as to attain a sense of fun and a view of the world that has some hope.

In Steve Hochman's article on the benefit for Jeff Porcaro's children, he referred to the band having attended Grant High School in Van Nuys ("Paying Tribute to Toto's Jeff Porcaro," Dec. 14). David Paich attended Chaminade College Preparatory in West Hills for four years, where he graduated in 1972. CHRIS TURKMANY Manager of Community Relations Chaminade College Preparatory Chatsworth

I enjoyed Steve Hochman's recent review of the live Cure show until he erroneously referred to the band's song "Killing an Arab" as being inspired by the classic Camus book "The Outsider" ("Smith Occasionally Finds the Cure for Doom, Gloom," Aug. 12). Try "The Stranger," Mr. Literature. Tsk, tsk! SCOTT SCHALIN Los Angeles

Please tell Steve Hochman that there is something significant about the Fab Four that we haven't seen, at least in a long while (Pop Eye, Nov. 19). "Let It Be" is still unavailable on either video or DVD, probably mired in Apple-related litigation. KENNEDY GAMMAGE San Diego

With regard to Steve Hochman's review of the "Oar" tribute album (Record Rack, July 10), Skip Spence did indeed play drums with Jefferson Airplane. But it was as a guitar player in MobyGrape that he helped create their wonderful guitar-driven sound, with Don Stevenson supplying the beat. JON SANDERS La Crescenta

Unlike Steve Hochman, I find nothing comical about Kurt Cobain's ashes being scattered around in airports and God only knows where else (Pop Eye, Feb. 11). Most decent human beings would not be amused by this. My insides twist in knots just thinking about it. REBECCA A. LIGHTFOOT Alta Loma

Re the Huey Lewis review, "Lewis Likable but Needs an Image Update" (Calendar, Nov. 4), writer Steve Hochman uses atrocious grammar by stating: "He should of rented . . . ." Literacy is a serious problem in our society. Please keep up your journalistic standards by insisting that your writers use proper English in your paper. ALAN R. CANTWELL JR. Los Angeles

It was a most pleasurable surprise to encounter Steve Hochman's piece on Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice ("Another Hopeless Romantic," June 22). Yet, I was also worried. After a year of feeling like Rice's music belonged only to me, would I soon have to share my favorite secret with the rest of the music-loving world? There wasn't any hype -- no expectations or preconceptions -- that came along with discovering Rice, which is the only way to discover his haunting, fresh and gorgeous songs, because he has remained in virtual obscurity outside Ireland.
