Response to Trajan (Reply #56)

73. Oh, please, don't try to sell me on that bullshit.

Re-interpretations, eh? I have no problem with reinterpretations. What I have a problem with is British musicians recording songs composed by African Americans and putting their own name to them and collecting the royalties. To be fair, they stole from other white brits as well. When Jimmy Page gave himself a writing credit for a british folk song, who was going to be around to sue? I don't know if this is made more funny or more sad that this song was a clear rip-off of Burth Jansch's arrangement of the song, but what was Jansch to do about it? He just shrugged it off.

Don't try to school me on art; especially music.

I'm sure you're right that at least 20,000,000 people would happily pay to see some stupid old men attempt to relive their 20s, and they're welcome to.
