Thread Name: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'?
Subject: RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'?
I'm about to depart for the Grocery Outlet store, a wonderful local market with piped in sixiies music, some of it okay, some of it really awful, but I can't turn off my internal listener nearly as well as my wife, so I know that in between Chuck Berry, Lelsey Gore and the Dave Clark Five, somewhere there will be some song by Gary Puckett (and the Union Gap)-sucked then, sucked between then and now, sucks now, with no short interludes of not sucking in between. I never hear any of the legends dissed or not diised here when I go out into the world,though I wouldn't mind a bit seeing the other shoppers walkin' around mouthing the lyrics to Dylan,Leadbelly, Robert Johnson,Sister Rosetta Tharpe or about 1000 other artists that I love-better that than non-legends, who never were legends,who just refuse to stay in their grave. My apologies to all fans of "Garry Puckett and the Union Gap"
