One of the GRand Masters of BS has passed to the Higher PLane. RIP, Mr Williams.

Mom, you know I love my music and I love singing good old songs and even some good new songs. But how many times do I have to listen to a guy with a Yamaha and a flatpick play "Wagon Wheel" in galumphey four-four time sounding like a washbasin being rolled down a frozen street? Or any other of a dozen 1980 standards with the musicality of a starving giraffe meeting an acacia tree? It's not the songs themselves, I suppose, it's the styling that sounds like pressed metal forms coming off a conveyor belt.

I think I am getting grumpy in my silvery years, moi. Sigh.
