<<I'm afraid that toward the end of his life, though, even Cage was 
beginning to believe in the scope of his larger myth created mostly by 
acolytes that had sprung up around him. Folks were ascribing quotes 
that he had never spoken or written and he would buy into them as if 
he originated the thought. Oh well...>>

As they say "If you're going to tell a story, make it an interesting one." I'm 
sure that John Cage did as much to burnish the John Cage story as anyone else, 
and that, on his centenary, that story becomes more interesting with each 
telling. I feel very honored to have at least met & conversed with him, as I 
see him as one of the primary architects of the sonic/musical environment that 
I inhabit.
