GUEST,Big Ballad Singer Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'? (159* d) RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'? 30 Jul 10


Tunesmith, read what I posted above. I don't care what anyone else thought or thinks of RJ or Leadbelly or anyone else.

That was MY opinion. I am not here to convince anyone to it, nor am I interested in arguing.

I asked who YOU thought was over-rated. If you don't like the idea of a thread like this, then ignore it. If you don't like my opinion, fine. Offer your own, or not.

But seriously, stop attacking me or anyone else who has an opinion that you don't like.

Makes me think there's people out there who just HAVE to have heroes who are somehow "untouchable". Somehow, there HAS to be some "mojo", some thing that makes them special...

that's not folk at all... that's the antithesis of folk as clearly demonstrated as I have ever seen it.

Funny thing... I listen to Robert AND Leadbelly... I perform their songs in concert at times and have for years.

All I said was that the "legend" thing was over-blown, unnecessary and misapplied when it came to those two men, IN MY PERSONAL OPINION.

George Formby... now, THERE'S a legend. Have at it.
