Letters to the Portland Editor, January 1, 2010
By PORTLAND PHOENIX LETTERS  |  December 30, 2009

Dear Portland rockers,

Can we have a benefit show or something in the coming year to save up enough money to buy three ghosts (preferably the ghosts of local rock's past, present, and future) to visit Sam Pfeifle in his dreams to tell him the following:

-Local rock is not a subgenre of rock 'n' roll.

-"Hit the Ground" is not the song of the decade. It's actually Headstart's "Do This." (See "'Hit the Ground,'" by Sam Pfeifle, December 25, 2009.)

-Please stop.

Peet Chamberlain
Portland
