In Fairness To Bill Gross…

Those deafening silences were once punctuated with this:

Lately, [Gross] has been trying to loosen up a bit in the office, where he prefers to focus, in silence, for hours in front of his trading screens. To break the quiet he helps impose, the morning we meet he starts a new ritual: at 8 a.m., a song that someone recommends is blasted over the sound system. Mr. Gross kicks it off with Short Skirt/Long Jacket by the alt-rock band Cake. He even helps lead a conga line past rows of stunned-looking traders.

Though it would appear they’ve fallen by the wayside.

    I gues he has his fans, but he's an asshole and I'd probably kill him if I was stuck in the same space.
