Subject: RE: Why did Ewan MacColl write new songs?
We all have to do something to earn a crust and keep the wolf from the door.
Living the fantasy life as a Scot with a false name and singing traditional bothy ballads in a phoney accent didn't bring in much,
but Jimmy found success as a song writer and I guess that is a good enough reason.
