Nashville Sucks (Musicians)

The writer jumps off from the pending rocker nuptials of Meg White (The White Stripes) to Jackson Smith (scion of MC5 guitarist Fred "Sonic" Smith and singer-songwriter Patti Smith) in Tennessee.

From there, he takes in the trending great American migration of musicians to Nashville. Interesting stuff from the guy who coined the phrase "creative class."

God, I hate Nashville.
