Thread Name: a song called 'My Name is Martin Gibson'
Subject: RE: a song called 'My Name is Martin Gibson'
"Martin Gibson" said a few things that no one should say, it's true.
Mostly, though, he said things that were simply annoying, and, often as not, directed them at people who were being annoying too. He definitely had axes to grind, but those axes were collected through years of involvement in the "folk world", which often seems to be dominated by pettiness, backstabbing, cronyism, jealously, and such. So as much as we might have protested his manner, most of us had been there too.
Someone once suggested (in jest) that, "Martin Gibson" had been created by Little Hawk. Because Mudcat is Mudcat, there was some serious discussion about it.
