Thread Name: music critics,do we need them?
Subject: RE: music critics,do we need them?
Dick managed to get into a completely pointless and protracted misunderstanding with him once, which is why I alluded to him.
it was not pointless,it was pertinent to this debate,it was about a music review that purported to be in Folk Roots,but in fact was not,hence the misunderstanding,if the reviewer had not stated that it had appeared in Folk Roots,and If I had worked on the principle,of not believing everything one sees on the internet, and had checked with Folk Roots, first, the misunderstanding would not have occurred.
I subsequently apologised to Ian Anderson,and received an apology from the reviewer for his misleading information.
