Kevin, I know Will Crutchfield, in addition to sharing magazine space with him. He has achieved a lot more eminence than I have, of course, but we've written for a lot of the same magazines, and run into each other at conferences and similar gatherings. We first met at a book-launching party for a critic we both consider our original inspiration to write about voice and music.

But I haven't seen him in a number of years now.
