Let me tell you a little about the Gin Blossoms. They named themselves after the rosacea on W.C. Fields' nose. Frankly, this would be enough to endear a band to me, but they also made some great tunes. New Miserable Experience is one of the nearly perfect albums of the 90s. And what would be my favorite song? "Found Out About You." The opening guitar riff is fantastic and Robin's voice is wonderful and warm and really special. It's a great song from an album that's spectacular.
The opening lyric, "All last summer in case you don't recall…" is brilliant. It's also my favorite first line of a book I've never written.
