Tam the man Folk Artists - Wise up (or Fade away)! (192* d) RE: Folk Artists - Wise up (or Fade away)! 18 Sep 05

Well I live in Scotland, and I heard the Ian McCalman who was at our club on night and he said that there are groups/singers that use music stands.
Anyway who bloody cares wither they use a songbook or not, I mean as long as they put on a good show that's all that matters, If you don't them then don't go and see them, I couldn't give a shit wither they used a songbook or not, just as long as they give a good show and at the end of the night you leave happy, Last night there was a clip of Lonnie Donegan on stage and he couldn't remeber a verse, however if he had the words with him, then he would made look like an idiot, and then in Australia they laid on a tribute concert for the memory of Slim Dusty and most of the Australian country singers were there on national televison and a singer called Jimmy Little was on stage in front of millions with the words to a song, and then a actor chappie came on and read the words to a poem.

As I say as long as they put on a great show who really cares it's only a bloody songbook, that's there style and I don't a problem with that.

That's my grip over again until the next time
Love and God Bless cause that's his job
