Here come the Sons

Regarding your question whether Sons of Bill has what it takes to make it [“No country for old men,” June 16]: Yes! They have what it takes to make it. Finally something new, different, original and exciting. “Something real, something with a cure…” as one of Sam’s songs goes. Their music is amazing, the lyrics are thoughtful, philosophical, and sometimes haunting. Go Sons! We want more!
