Ireland Are we losing all the greats names (30) RE: Are we losing all the greats names 28 Nov 02

I'm not talking about the abilities of those I mentioned, what I meant was this,who on earth does not know of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Bob Dylan.

What or who is going to replace the people others see as great what evers.

This is were my lack of knowledge of all the great folk singers is highlighted, so my picking Wayne and Eastwood was to illustrate my point,as there are too many actors that can hold the title of being a giant in their industry.

But if we watch a movie remake why is it that it is no where near the original, why for example when On Golden Pond is shown with Hepburn and Fonda, they alone make the film worth watching. Will there be in years to come actors of the stature, that good no matter what age they are worth watching.

Will there be another John Wayne, just as will there ever be another Clancy Bros or Dylan? Will folk stay the same as many new singers bring their own flavour to the scene, River Dance for example shows how trad dancing can be taken off in a different tangent.

I was sort of hoping some would put up names of who they admire in the folk arena, so I can go and check em out.
