Ha Ha, maybe not Jack. But . . . he has made 120 albums, made a ton of money
in music and got the New York Times to recognize him and his new album which
the article writer categorizes as swinging.

Shouldn't those of us who lead, or play in bands which do indeed swing,
therefore be far more successful than Paul Anka.

Why aren't we?  

Well, that's what the post was about.
