I always like(d) Dave's old house/old car/ big speaker discussions. He was heavy on the old coot factor, but that's fine in doses.  He also apparently was well timed on making the Tom Waits for no one joke.

Interesting guy. Hope things worked well for him out there...

I always liked the cantankerous old fart (I think that's what he called himself)...had some nice vintage audio gear, and advice.

Is s/he really a troll? The only comments they've offered indicate ignorant/narrow-minded views regarding vocalists and music.

Are such people beyond salvation? (maybe I shouldn't ask you ; > ) )

My kids have periodically fallen into the habit of thinking "I don't like that = that sucks!", particularly regarding music. I think as they mature, they are slowly coming around to a more tolerant and open-minded view of things.

Make up your mind; do you want primitive, rootsy music performed by the song creator, or polished performances by trained, talented singers?

———————————————————-

This is a common carp in the Tom Waits/Leonard Cohen and other song comment threads.  You could find lots of other examples of popular performers who were not accomplished, pitch-perfect singers (Jimmy Durante, Louis Armstrong).

If you want to limit your listening to music featuring trained/instinctively polished vocalists with operatic control of pitch and phrasing, be my guest. You'll be the poorer for it.

He doesn't need permission.

 
It's a little late to bring up now, anyhow: He's been putting out records for 40 years.
