"its a bit like being a lesbian - it gives some people pleasure."
but no good if you are a man, lesbianism is exclusive, its no fun if you are a man.

if the last forty odd years have taught me anything - its that i've been excluded from the folk scene.

fuck   'em! i'm still alive, still make music, made a living most of my life from it. still working at my guitar playing and songwriting, still appreciated in most places as a skillful performer most times when i pick up my guitar.

so they exclude people. so what! its their call. its their football - they choose to put the goal posts where they want . live with it.
