Column 19: Joseph Kahn

In my estimation Joseph Kahn is now the most important/greatest director in music video history, having recently surpassed David Fincher and re: the (not yet noted) decreased relevance of the work of Oskar Fischinger. This year alone, Joseph has racked up one billion Youtube views with four videos, and in his 27-yr career has made almost 150. (I think Nigel Dick has created the most: 373.)

Congratulations, Joseph!
