Five Songs, Part 47

Okay, here’s what. and What. And, in one case, Wot. Five Songs asks a lot more questions than can be answered in five songs this week.And since I’m slowly rounding back for the moment into newspaper work for the moment, I’ll forgo most of the questions a reporter is supposed to ask — Who? What? Where? When? Why? etc. — and settle on What?

And the weird thing is it all started with a jagged memory from the mid-’80s — free-associating from reading about Anthrax playing the Big 4 concert with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth this week at Yankee Stadium. Free-associating back to the pre-Anthrax S.O.D. days.
