<<< It doesn`t upset me PW, except it upsets me to be forced to be mean

anyone. >>>

<<< I suspect that most of the really rude folks on this list (folks
like Tom Freeland) are the kinds of folks who are cowering wimps in real

make up for their real life cowardess. They say rude and obnoxious
things to people on the web which they wouldn`t dare say to anyone`s
face. >>>

<<< And I never claim to be an expert. >>>

<<< First, rock-influenced blues is _clearly_ blues. >>>

and then Rick goes on to say:

Kinda sounds like a self portrait to me, Rick!

In response to your daily sermons I have been inspired to write some
verse in you honour:

"The Right Reverand Ricky
Loves to type and type all day
Tellin' one and all
On the ol' Blues-L
That we need to think "his way."

The Right Reverand Ricky
He's got too much time on his hands
Tellin' one and all
On the ol' Blues-L
That we need to like "his bands."

The Right Reverand Ricky
Is this the best that you can do?
To tell us "that is this"
and "this is that"
Ricky's own personal "blues who's who."

So Right Reverand Ricky
Take some of your own advice
Although you dare to post
All you want
Make the rest of your posts nice."
