Seal is somebody whose music I’m a little shocked I like. The only way to explain it: The musicianship is outstanding. Anyway, wondering: can we grant him honorary FNG status, because he’s married, has kids whom he takes along with his wife every year for a family celebration of his and his wife’s anniversary? Or do we need more than that? Or does he have Tiger problems we don’t know about?
Wrestling out loud here with the definition of FNG – it should be generous, in the warm guy way that you see at neighborhood picnics and Knights of Columbus barbecues, willing to overlook lots of little foibles, but not meaningless. In Seal’s case, ‘little foibles’ might include: “Married a supermodel” and “owns beach property in Mexico”.
OK, so Seal’s a stretch.
