Thread Name: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
I remember being appalled when I first started out in music, listening to one drunk argue with another that Robert Plan could "outsing" the dude from AC/DC.
Appalled that anyone could consider the singing talents of either worthy of a second thought, incredulous that anyone could imagine singing talent as a competitive skill, amazed at the stupidity of trying to pit the artistic qualities of two individuals against one another - in this case, albeit individuals with athletic as opposed to artistic qualities.
Anyway - since then I've learned when it comes to art/music; some people just don't get it.
There's no need to get anyone's undies in a wad over this issue.
