Although I'm sure he can look after himself here's Greg Stephens quoting what he himself actually said in 2003:

"Jim Moray is having a play about with computers, as are many other people.Fair play to them. The music's out there to play with. Enjoy yourselves. Time will sort the wheat from the chaff." (surely the soul of sweet reasonableness?).

And in spite of Diane Easby having this re-quote readily available for reference, here's what she still insists she thought Mr Stephens said:

"I remembered Greg Stephens dismissing Jim Moray's music as "messing about with computers""

Why are you so desperate to rush to the defence of the young and the new, Ms Easby? Surely our chosen musical field is one where the old and traditional have, at least, some relevance. Have you ever thought that you might be in the wrong field?
