    I am seriously trying to comprehend any redeeming qualities associated with
    Disco and its culture. Unless one held a huge arse holding in the polyester
    industry maybe that could be one. Music-wise? I'm still trying to think of
    one almost redeeming quality. Every once in a while I'll see this interview
    on VH-1 with Niles Rodgers complaining about that baseball game in the 70's
    where it turned into a Death To Disco Rally. I can usually find something
    redeeming about almost anything but living during that era just turned me
    against it all. Hey wait before I flush Disco down the toilet I just
    thought of something redeeming about it, Louis Johnson's Bass Playing on
    Strawberry Letter 23. I have to say that was friggin' awesome and I have
    recently heard it on a T.V. Commercial. Always end on a positive.

    Semper Motociclismo,
