When Lyle Lovett was touring in support of his new CD, “Natural Forces,” he opened the show with “Sun and Moon and Stars,” a song written early in the career of Texan Vince Bell. Lovett said he recorded the song as a tribute to Bell, one of his mentors. For audience members familiar with Bell’s story, it was a particularly touching moment.
In a recent interview for Time magazine, author Sue Grafton said that Kinsey Milhone, the hero of her long-running alphabet series, is “the person I might have been had I not married young and had children. I always say that I’m just like Kinsey Milhone unless you don’t like her, and then I disavow any connection.”
