Bounty Hound 'Traditional' folk/rock - meaningless? (84* d) RE: 'Traditional' folk/rock - meaningless? 16 Sep 14


'Talk about 'preserving the tradition' is meaningless, whether applied to folk-rock or other revival styles.
Let's try putting it a different way then Howard, how about 'keeping traditional songs alive'

You are of course correct that the 'habitat' that the tradition grew in has gone, but that makes keeping those songs (and tunes) alive all the more important in my view.


And Jim, ''"meaning ???... who needs meaning....!!????"
That's the impression the clip left me with as well.

as pointed out elsewhere, I'm well aware of your distaste for folk/rock as a style, but you do seem to be in a minority of one in not being able to hear the words, and perhaps your comment 'meaning...' could be interpreted as being, to use one of your favourite words 'insulting' and questioning my motives for singing the song in the first place.
