"IF YOU ARE A HARDCORE, HARDLINE TRADITIONALIST AND FIND MY OPINIONS ON FOLK MUSIC HERETICAL AND MY IMAGES OFFENSIVE AND SHOWING A GENERAL LACK OF RESPECT, THEN I AM OBVIOUSLY DOING SOMETHING RIGHT."

Personally (speaking as someone who often gets called a hardcore, hardline traditionalist) I find David Owen's images & ideas utterly charming and not in the least bit heretical, offensive, alternative or disrepectful. He is obviously doing it right because he's in demand with an impressive CV to boot, which he wouldn't have if he was truly offensive, disrespectful or heretical.
