Well, this will certainly start the week off with some lively
discussion, although, I have to admit that I find myself
perplexed at the subject--I mean, unless an artist
identifies him or herself as Jewish, and uses Jewish sources,
or Jewish subjects, or something Jewish-identified in the 
music, to what degree, other than trivial pursuit, does it
matter? I mean, Randy California even did a rather nice heavy
metal version of "Hine Ma Tov" on an early Spirit album, but
I still have trouble of thinking of him as a Jewish artist
(even though I confess to still being fond of old albums by
the group). I'm sure we all have similar experiences....
