I'm sure I speak for many readers when I say that I was absolutely delighted with Steve Albini's recent letter to Bill Wyman [January 28]. Steve articulated perfectly the frustration and disgust many of us have with Wyman and his propensity for promoting mediocre, completely unspectacular Chicago rock acts like Liz Phair, Shrimp Boat, Red Red Meat, and his most recent pet project, Veruca Salt. If one went solely on what Wyman writes in his column, one would think there are only about seven bands in the entire city.

Thanks Steve for exposing Wyman for what he really is: a not very knowledgeable shill for his Wicker Park cronies.
