Subject: RE: Do purists really exist?
Colin, I'm sorry you are feeling insulted. I didn't intend it, and rather thought I didn't say anything as insulting as you saying that traditional music is defined by the tastes of the listener. But it's really not important. Without meaning to insult you, I really do think that education should come before judgment.

To learn the difference, I can only repeat what I said before: listen, listen, listen, listen. Then make your own decisions about what fits and what doesn't. Just don't try to tell me that there isn't a difference.
