don't worry - you're not on your own. there are loads of people who think Dylan Thomas as a poet wasn't a patch on the dreary gits reading their odes at the eisteddford. plenty of people think Alex Higgins was a crap snooker player - not worthy to lick Steve Davis's boots. Bix Beiderbecke - not a patch on Alex Welsh. Tom Paxton - not really entitled to call himself a folksinger.
pity you lot couldn't hold back on the occasion of his death, and let those of us who respected him, grieve.
