I won't say that Primal Scream leader Bobby Gillespie is the last rock 'n' roll star. The last time I remember someone being called that was when a certain
rock magazine put the label on Paul Westerberg. "Who?" you may ask. Exactly. I also remember the same publication calling Nick Cave "the last rock 'n'
roll star" before he turned to his personal Jesus and started crooning very non-rock-'n'-roll-sounding ballads. So it's probably not a good idea to hold
anyone up as the sole standard bearer of an artistic medium -- it's tempting fate, putting too much pressure...
