Jim - fair enough.. MacColl was a great bloke...

Now, trying to relate the admiration for him to this thread...

If he could have experienced the last 30 years of music in all it's diversity,
how adaptable or intolerant would he be...???

Might MacColl think things you don't like in modern folk, are actually quite inspiring and cool...???

How would he have accepted computer/internet music technology and the way it has opened up,
democratised and facilitated,
affordable high quality music recording, production, and distribution for the ordiany folks...???
Way beyond the horizons of any folk clubs...
