Thread Name: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
Subject: RE: Dave Van Ronk & Penny Lang's son ?
So, I'm wondering if there's a productive place where this thread will go, or is it heading toward some sort of tabloid smear? The young man claims on his website and on his MySpace page, to be the song of Van Ronk and Penny Lang - and that's how he's described on gig announcements.

Some people who apparently don't believe that's true. Maybe that's the sort of thing that should be believed, unless proved otherwise in court.

I guess I won't close the thread for now, but I'll try to keep an eye on it. Let me know if you think it's getting out of hand, or if it gets nasty or hurtful.

And please, if you don't know, don't speculate.
