GUEST,Skip Greatest protest singer of the sixties (99* d) RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties 30 Jan 00

Thanks everyone for all your wide ranges of thought and experience. What do we judge by -- "greatest protest singer"? Personally I put the emphasis on "protest." Phil Ochs' voice was the harshest, his songs the most like a knife into the depths of the system, his life the least compromised, and that uncompromising stance lasting longer than almost anyone's. I look back and say about everyone, including Dylan, they were songwriters who wrote some protest songs. Ochs was a protester who wrote songs. --my $0.02, thank you.
