""the youth of today mutter, mutter, mutter........"
Now you are sinking to the level of the insulters Raggy - shame on you
We are not discussing "the youth of today", we are discussing what should be a specific type of music and its importance in our culture - we are supposed to be adults, so far I see little sign of that
Your flailing about and looking for a weakness really isn't a substitute for either defining what your interpretation of the term is or why it is not important - both are preferable but either will do
I don't "cling to a definition" - I went out to test if if hold water and you know what - it did.
If Walter Pardon, Tom Lenihan and the Travellers can sort the wheat from the chaff in terms of identification and hold their music as important, I see no reason why a bunch of adults here can't do the same
I've put Walter's statement on how he discriminated between his different types of songs man times - I'll put it up again when I can lay hands on it
Now - we've has all the childish abuse - how about some real adult argumet
