Thurston said no.

Thurston Moore politely passed on our invitation to write a foreword for our free jazz book, citing too many current assignments. He was considerate, and had a bland word or two of support for the project, but the news was disappointing, as he seemed such a natural for the gig. I took it as a negative judgment on our work so far. Why even request a look at the proposal if he was over-committed? Ah, well. Next! (The prospective list now includes Thom Yorke, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Brian Eno ... free jazz fans all.)

Anyone out there have Iggy's number?

What about Robert Pollard? After the GBV tour ends on Dec. 31, he's allegedly out of a job. Just a thought.

Hm. Dunno. Not aware that he's a free jazz fan.
