So much of this blog post on Aquarium Drunkard was/is me that it's almost frightening. In 1996, as my college days were coming to an end, I called Tony Margherita's office looking for a job. When I didn't hear back, I called again. I never heard back. A few years later, I tried again and was offered an entry-level role that I didn't accept. I was at both Irving Plaza shows. I've sat on a train from Hoboken singing "Forget the Flowers." Being There convinced me that I had to work in the music business, and for the past 14 years I have. I almost went to law school with the intention of becoming an entertainment lawyer. And through it all, Wilco have been my favorite band. I must have met this guy.
