As my musical tastes evolved, I got big into the idea of concept albums, which goes hand in hand with prog. Long meandering pieces, often with no vocals, also became my shit.

Wells Fargo and Bloomberg News are facing some heat. Earlier today, I reported via sources that a Bloomberg News reporter who covered Wells Fargo was reassigned earlier this year after the bank’s CEO phoned the news organization’s editor in chief and complained about the reporter. That incident, I’m told, rocked the banking team and was a contributing factor in the departures of some of the unit’s veteran reporters.
