Thread Name: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Subject: RE: The 'Celtic Music/Dave Bulmer' saga
Please listen to George when he asks for caution.
I repeat Bulmer is an exceedinly stubborn man. There has been some suggestion, that his attitudes may be changing, although this may just be more "Bloody-minded Bulmerism".
Ralphie and George know the score, DB is getting increasingly isolated, he has lost his Scottish shop, lost trust of artists who were friends and workmates etc.
Direct confrontation, by well meaning supporters, can only do more harm than good to Nic's situation. I know how frustrating it is, but he is well aware of the strength of feeling against him.
If you want to take effective action, choose not to buy his products. This is hard when suddenly finding, "Rout of the Blues", "Under the Rain", "The Traveller", Bright Phoebus", or "No more Forever" in front of you in Tower or wherever, after 20 years of looking, but remember if you do buy them not a penny will reach the artist anyway.
Remember the tale of the old bull and the young bull,
