Washington Post chat brings out Squeeze fans (updated post)
Monday's online chat with David Segal is evidence of two hypotheses about Squeeze: 1) there are a lot more Squeeze fans than one might think or 2) Squeeze fans are insatiable and they come out with the slightest provocation. These theories are not mutually exclusive.
I forgot to quote the best bit:
David Segal: Hall of Fame? Hell yes. If Loverboy is in the Hall of Fame, why not Squeeze?
Oh, wait, Loverboy is not in the Hall of Fame. Forget that. I think Squeeze is great. I also think that the Hall of Fame is not the ultimate measure of a band's excellence. I mean, the Sex Pistols are not in the Hall. Go figure.
