I'm sorry, I just have to say this - I think Richard Thompson gets sexier and better by the year. In fact, I would say he IS the Sean Connery of Folk.

Suggestions for the "something" of Folk, any one?

Wolfgang,

I know Thompson quite well. His music is really great. I'm singing some of his song e.g. "when the spell is broken" and others together with a friend of mine.

But I would call him "quite nice" but not at all "sexy".

Greetings

Sabine

Richard Thompson is a genius musician and writes some fab songs (wall of death is the best) but personally i think he is quite satanic looking! i am sure he's a really nice guy but i would run a mile if he was coming up a dark alley towards me!!!!

If the men started a thread like this, would you women cry pig ?

BTW, just thought of it. Shania made the front page of the Moncton Times & Transcript today. Preggers she is. I'm going to run for Prime Minister and ram a law through Parliament that Shania and Celine only be allowed to get pregnant at the same time. I surely will go nuts having yet another Canadian stupidstar thrust in my face every newscast for doing what comes natural, or in Celine's case, un-natural.

So, what about it ladies, er women, er not men ?

Gnu, not long ago there was a thread about Emmylou Harris which contained a not inconsiderable amount of drooling- some male-types were better able to conceal it than others... I found it quite amusing!

I agree with the sexy genius idea...Stevie Ray Vaughn was an ugly git technically, but i still thought he was the sexiest thing ever to play an electric guitar..it was the passion he put into it I think.

I've been hearing alot of RT lately, but I hadn't seen a picture of him in recent years until I stumbled upon the April issue of Dirty Linen which features Sir Richard on the cover ...I must admit I remember thinkin to my self..'mmmm, he IS as sexy as he sounds'...so for what its worth, throw my vote in as well;-)

Strangely, my internet/email system fell apart for 5 days after I posted this thread!!

Glad that it caused some discussion though! I think Sir Richard/God is sexy 'cause of his genius (not in the same genius/sexy way as Albert Einstein 4 Marilyn Munroe for example)

LIsten to that song, um "Feeeeeeeeeel soo good ....Gonna break someone's heart tonight" mmmmmmmmmm passion......by the bucket load...

Anyway, if Richard is the Sean of Folk - then what other comparisons e.g. "so and so" is the Arthur Scargill of folk

PS saw June Tabor last night at the Komedia, Brighton last night - now that is another "sexy" person - the Charlotte Rampling of folk???? Cheers Hille

I've always seen myself as Michael Caine (if he were shorter and sounded like Jasper Carrot)but an unbiased observer might think I'm more like the Elephant Man.
