GUEST,Big Ballad Singer Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'? (159* d) RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'? 29 Jul 10


Dave H,

"...something [I] will never be."

And you know me or a god-damned thing about me, how, exactly?

Fred Mc:

How would LISTENING to Johnson's music closely inform me that he recorded in 1936? Oh, and that was an honest mistake... I know a ton more about Johnson and a lot of other Delta artists than you are wrongly assuming. I was at my desk and not near my altar to Robert. SO sorry.

DWDitty, THANK YOU. I don't know why several assholes have decided that THEIR opinion of Leadbelly not only negates mine, but gives them license to attack me personally.

Joe, or whoever, go ahead and close this f-ing thing. I never realized how wrong it was to have an opinion different from the obviously exalted personages who have poured out their wrath on this poor sinner.
