Subject: RE: Obit: Manitas de Plata, old 'silver fingers'
It bears a striking similarity to the ongoing row between Jim Carroll and me. Jim swears that Bob Dylan isn't folk music. The flamenco connosieurs say that Manitas isn't flamenco - despite the perception of the world at large, in both cases.
Either you see the folk process as something frozen in rules, or you see it as a living evolving thing.
Imagine not wanting strikers like this in your first eleven....!
Don't let's have an argument on the man's grave though.
