NEW FOR APRIL 15, 2007 I suspect music has started as many fights as religion has started wars. The catalyst can usually be identified as a single factor: The DJ. That may be a guy on the radio, a girl spinning in the clubs or just the fool at your party who has commandeered the sound system in your living room.
