"I got two ears and a heart don't I?"
and have met him, I still get him confused with:
you met phil collins? when/where/what's he like/pix plz?
I saw him live last year in an all-dayer. He were good. Even if he looked like he'd just got out of bed.
He has charisma.
when a band is usually only defended by whats "in" the content of the music, it usually means theres something lacking...Terms like "lyrical craftsmanship" and "professionalism", "masterpiece" and stressing the word "artist" (which, Im sorry, even makes me cringe, even when people apply it to someone like Bowie) are apparently authoritative ways of saying that something should be respected, and leaves out the intangible stuff that produces great music (obv. IMHO)...Really, those terms go no way in really getting to why the music is good, theyre assertions of a kind of status right? Do I take it that you dislike "uncrafted" music? And what is craft versus uncraft? He seems like one of these people that revels in being an apparently detached artist. The sort thatd try their hand at anything because they think they can.
sorry by the way.
my god I was tired. I humbly receive my public shame.
