Thread Name: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
Subject: RE: Gulp! Ewan MacColl - Scottish or Not?
I believe the Millars' milkman, Stavros, was Greek...
Sorry, I feel in a devilish mood this morning!
Fact is, I'd have had no chance if I'd gone to the Singers Club in Ewan's days. Who wants to hear "Never on a Sunday" week in, week out? I know I don't. And "Flowers & Guns" would not have existed.
OK, I know I am unusual in my provenance; but extreme conditions test the rule, and this rule is left wanting. Just because Ewan was a great singer and writer it doesn't make everything he said or did great - this rule stank.
