Reader comment: Grayson says,
Anyone who makes an academic study of nice derrieres is bound to be interesting. Dr. David Holmes has a web page (and clearly a decent sense of humor). Complete with pics of him in local bands in the 80s and some cool records and guitars for sale. This is the same Manchester Metropolitan University professor mentioned in the earlier "perfect ass equation" post. Link
