    The late '70s and early '80s 'punk' thing was a very destructive force in popular music, in my opinion. Creators of great music (and great lyrics) such as the likes of Pink Floyd were described as 'rock dinosaurs' and publicly had their musical credibility rubbished in preference to the 2-chord fff electric guitar sound which, in a sense, was little more than '70s Status Quo with swearing, spitting and safety pins.
    Luckilly the '80s still had something to deliver and I enjoyed the growth of the band Marillion until their front man 'Fish' had an ego-overdrive and left the band which sent both down very different paths. Meanwhile, of course, Phil Collins was leading 70's supergroup Genesis to become a middle-aged-mum's pop band; but that's a whole other story.

    Please do not make the "punk" thing sound any more attractive than it already is as we have had problems in the past and are currently experiencing even more on this forum with people (it's actually only one person) who spitefully and vindictively glorify such music.

    There is a forum member here (I can't name him because it is a violation of the Terms of Service) who has actually created a thread entitled "Celtic Music - Contemporary & Rock & Punk & Metal & More" in which he posts "Celtic Punk" videos such as "I Hope They Sell Beer In Hell" by the punk band "Mr. Irish Ba$tard"... He has also been known to do so in other threads... and he won't stop posting "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding" even though he has done so almost a hundred times already and everyone but him is thoroughly sick to death of hearing it....

    Don't feed the trolls...

    - Syd



    And don't even mention "What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?" - or else he'll just play it again...



    Amend that phrase "Don't feed the trolls" to include the sentence "and especially don't give them anything to drink"...

    Thanks!

    - Syd

    I don't see the relevance in anything you've said; but in your selective quoting, you've completely missed the point. What a way to kill your own thread.

    Re Strange Magic

    In my own case I was preoccupied with other music. Jazz, jazz/rock, and classical along with contemporary acoustic string music. But a year earlier in '79 it was Floyd, Tull, Kansas, etc...

    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Some people can carry their past with them and others need to jettison every previous memory that they have...

    Some people just need to keep moving relentlessly forward... It's the journey not the destination.

    Seriously, good luck with that one - take a look at the first three pages of "Non Classical Music" and see whose name appears...

    The best advice that I can give you is to just add my name to your "Ignore" list because if you're not open-minded and have the appropriate sense of humour you may find my posts and threads to be a bit of a trial...

    Even those who are open-minded and have a sense of humour find my posts and threads to be a bit of a trial... at times... not always.... just "at times"...

    They have an awfull bad case of hermanshermitsophobia here and I find them to be just as much of a trial as they find me... at times... not always... just "at times"...

    Your guess is as good as mine...

    As the OP, this thread, like all of the others that I create is an officially declared "No Snark Zone" in which everyone is welcome to participate and to agree or disagree with one another as vigorously as they wish provided that they always remain "polite, respectful, and civil" towards one another in keeping with the actual Terms of Service which they agreed to upon signing up.

    If being "polite, respectful, and civil" is something that you have difficulties with then perhaps in the future you might want to avoid any threads that I create as I do actually ensure that the rules and regulations of the Terms of Service are rigorously enforced and that all discourse actually is "polite, respectful, and civil".
