Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I can put up with you insulting me, Jim, (although it would help if your attacks bore some resemblance to something I'd actually said) but with your "Feckin' about with performers' work may be what people do at Bryan's club;" you have insulted a team of hard working people you have never met and the reputation of a well respected folk club. Erstwhile members of the Critics Group seem perfectly happy to take bookings with us. A full apology as soon as you like.
Keep it up. You dig yourself a little deeper with every post. Since you say you take your values from Ewan MacColl you're not exactly doing his reputation a lot of good either.
(I really would recommend people to have a look at the Sheila Stewart interview in Living Tradition http://www.folkmusic.net/htmfiles/inart599.htm. There's some interesting stuff about MacColl in there.)
