Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
That idea in the quote in the Cap'ns last post sounds to me very like the attitude the International Olympic Committee and other sports organizations used to take, as to who was to be considered an amateur athlete.

Thus a wonderful athlete would be denied the right to participate in high level athletics, like the Olympics, because he played some semipro baseball one summer when he was in college, years ago.

Sound familiar?
