Can`t help feeling that there seeems to be some really jealous individuals out there and wannabees who simply do not have the talent themselves to either write their own songs or even cover other artists material decently. Therefore these cynics spend their days knocking the shit out of greats like Lightfoot and Dylan.

I must add that thankfully this only applies to a minority of the thread subscribers who seem to delight in being cynical and scathing in their words.

To all of you cynics I would like to dedicate a famous quote from Brendan Behan who certainly did not mince his words: This is how he feels about press critics who indulge in knocking the artist:

"They are like eunochs in a halem-They know how it`s done, because they see it being done every night-but they can`t do it themselves.

Here`s to the artist!
