Because he’s my boss (again).

But even if he weren’t, I’d honestly still be writing this.

Look—Radiohead, Warren Zevon, Pixies, Nine Inch Nails, Beck, The Smiths, Soundgarden, T-Rex, Motorhead, Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs, Sonic Youth, Big Star, and Outkast are all inexplicably NOT in their hall of fame. And Alex’s insurgent influence on advertising/creatives/culture is no less obvious than all of the above’s on music/musicians.

So, AAF, don’t be as tone deaf as that hall of fame-that-shall-remain-nameless-in-Cleveland.

This is a no-brainer.
