And if he did, it would be notable. Why? Because music does matter, and some types of folks like some sorts of music.

And I understand Leo's taste in music. It fits HIM.. Same way, oh, say, Spenser -- who must be pushing 70 -- listens to that stuff. But for someone to start a series now about a thirty or forty-something guy who only listens to music from the forties, well, sure, it happens, but it's uncommon enough to at least be seen as possibly sorta precious.
