Subject: RE: Songwriters and their Meddling
To be fair, critics are part and parcel. I once read a review of a concert of a band I was in and sat ranting at the paper.
I perhaps should have been grateful New Musical Express had sent someone and my real anger was that I agreed with some of the criticism.*
You are right though Allan. The one question I suppose, is; what is best. "I don't like it" or "I reckon I'd like it more if the tempo blah blah"? Beauty is in the ear of the beholder after all.
I'm sure Clapton is fed up with Layla vs Layla conversations...
*They sent someone to a concert hall down the road for The Damned but the gig was cancelled and the reviewer blagged a free ticket for our folk rock gig instead.
