Gene Burton What is Acoustic Rock? (149* d) RE: What is Acoustic Rock? 20 Feb 08


Nigel, is that Riverman by Nick Drake? The same Nick Drake reknowned the world over for his cheery knees-up light entertainment and defiantly non-introspective songwriting?? Or some other Riverman??

Nothing wrong with melancholia in songwriting in my opinion; sadness is a human emotion felt by all of us at some time and it has every bit as much place in our music as happiness, drugs, fornication, drink, animals, the seasons, nature or whatever else people want to write about. Just some are better at putting it across with power and beauty than others (few more so than Mr. Drake IMO)
