GUEST,Sam Pirt Nickel Creek--overrated? (42) RE: Nickel Creek--overrated? 29 Mar 03


ickel Creek ROCK

It is as simple as that, why? I hear all of you who do not think this ask. Well They are young, are ALL fantastic players singers.

I could understand if you were knocking some boy band or something but you are knocking genuinly talented young musicians and I don't like that. These folks deserve respect.

BUT   Nickel Creek is not 'traditional'I hear you say. It may not be the real roots traditional country but you just can't dismiss musicians for not being by the book traditional. Just becasue they may not be 'traditional' does not mean they have any less to say or give to tradional music.

If you can enompass some of the tradition while moving it on I think that can only be good. Music developes, perhaps this is next generation country, and its good.

Cheers, Sam
