Thought I did.
20 August 10.02:
. . . Events will happen which some choose to call 'f*lk'. If they mean mostly MOR snigger-snoggers and new-agey tripe, so what? What's good (if anything) will survive and the rest will fall by the wayside. Just as has always happened.
Then. of course, there's the 'good-enough-for-folk', 'let's dumb-it-down' gang whose mantra seems to be the newcomers will be scared off if they don't serve up MOR tripe.
No they won't.
If they don't come again it's probably because they were expecting trad music and not . . . MOR tripe . . .
