"but there is truth in the comment made"
THere - it's catching
The worst you can do with anything is to pretend it is something else leaving people to find out it wasn't what you told them it was
I wes lucky to find that out before I buggered off the scene fifty years ago
We came to the music because we liked it for what it was - any foundation we build for it has to be based on that

"Jim. Is criticism of the song permitted?"
Of course it is, but not in terms of criticising the singer, which is what you have done here
I've just made my point about this behavior and it's consequences on the 'Roud book' thread
I'm off for some fresh air
