Thread Name: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
Subject: RE: Folklore: What did you do in the war, Ewan?
You're absolutely right, Jim here we go again.

Why is it that when someone asks a question about Ewan MacColl (aka Jimmy Miller) it draws a highly irrational response from those who have apparently declared him off-limits. Not everyone knows everything about him, Jim. That's why we have forums such as Mudcat those who don't have your encyclopedic knowledge of all things MacColl can ask questions and hopefully get answers (just like the 'Catter who asked about the Singers'Club).

"Read the book " What book? Hope you didn't mean MacColl's autobiography. For some reason he developed amnesia about 1939-45 no wonder people ask questions about what he did during the war!

And how did you manage to work Dylan into this discussion? "If you dare to ask about Ewan MacColl and the war, I'll mention Dylan and the Civil Rights movement." Wonderful bit of intellect, Jim.

For God's sake get over it.
