>>In the Arlo Guthrie thread today, someone referred to people who don't like Arlo performing with orchestras as "folk Nazis."
How about instead we refer to them as "really-silly-people-who-think-they-know-it-all-and-have-the-right-to-tell-us-what's-righteous-and-good-for-us"? Nah. It just doesn't have that ring to it.
But the truth is that, that's pretty much what they are. And fairly harmless at that.
Name calling never really helps anything. If you happen to like Arlo Guthrie playing with an orhestra (and just for the record, I'm not wild about it) or Pete Seeger playing with a large choir (which on the other hand, I quite enjoy), or anything which is out of the narrow confines of "the way the music's always been played", then who cares what other people's taste tells them. You like it. That's what matters.
