MGM·Lion 'I can't sing!' (38) RE: 'I can't sing!' 03 Jun 16

Jim -- Not sure what you mean by 'physically wrong with them'. The cousin I described in my last post literally could not sing a note under any sort of encouragement or instruction; but as for 'physically wrong with him', he was a good footballer as a young man, and was in St Paul's School first boxing team for three years, and never lost a match! I suppose that having vocal cords that could not form a melody could be so construed, but it seems a bit overstated to me.

And Johnny J, he has not 'the potential to sing', whatever you might mean by 'Everyone'. He is as capable of singing, in any meaningful sense of the word, as I am of running a mile in three minutes
