Yes, he does get some flack. Interesting that most of it comes from those of us who had dealings with him one way or another. I based my comment on knowledge by the way. If I were using it to knock him, I would refer to Jeanís long legal battle to get what was hers and how the aforementioned royalties were used in court.

Whatís more interesting is the Jesus cult surrounding him cannot stand the slightest criticism. He was human. He had all the traits of the polymath he was, and didnít suffer fools gladly.

None of which is relevant to this thread. Jimís diatribe however is predictable. It was in response to my pointing out where copyright of this song was originally held and, ironically (given Jimís waffle) my pointing out MacColl didnít enjoy full royalties on most of his most famous songs.

You see, even if you say nice things about MacColl, Jim will judge your comment by who comments rather than bothering to read the whole post. He has form.
