Clapton is good. I also like Santana from that era. As a metalhead, my favorites are Nugent, George Lynch (former Dokken), and Yngwie Malmsteen.

"Call it a spirited assault on a pantheon that has been foisted upon us, or a defiant rejection of the hegemonic view of rock history espoused by the critics who preceded us," DeRogatis writes in the introduction.

Yawn. Every generation seizes upon any excuse to declare themselves more hep/hip/cool/down/smarter/better than the previous generation, and any act of rebellious rejection of things cherished by the prior generation is "scored" as "proof" of their superiority and better taste/morals etc.

Ironically, in following this age-old pattern of rebellious rejection, they're not distinguishing themselves -- they're just exactly like every generation that came before.

So this woman bills herself as a qualified MUSIC critic, and proceeds to shred Skynyrd's values and the "stigma" that his music implied. The politics of ad hominem at its meaningless best.

I saw Nugent during his "Cat Scratch Fever" tour and it was amazing.

Now, if they'd gone after Little Feat's Waiting for Columbus, I'd be on their ass.

I always think of Good Fellas when I hear that song now, with that anachronistic piano section droning on in the background.

Thanks. She really is quite a character. ;)

My sis told me the other day that the Dead - minus J. Garcia, who is doubly Dead, will be appearing in Raleigh next month.
Be still my heart.

Music Nazis are gigantic bores. There is a certain amount of fun to be had criticizing music, but personal tastes are just that; personal. For the life of me, I never saw the "genius" of Prince, but he is widely recognized as a brilliant musician for some reason. Likewise, I never saw Madonna as anything other than the hype.

When people start vilifying the music, it just comes across as either snobbish or parochial. The only critique you can really trust is that of the die-hard fan. An REM fan who laments their latest release, or the Metallica fan who pines for the black album days. At least you can respect their point of view.

"I wanted none of Skynyrd's talk of down-home values. It sounded like Moral Majority code speak, and this teenaged member of Greenpeace and..."

As I was saying.... (see my previous post about younger generations wanting to reject the values of the older, whether it makes sense or not)

Note that she's not bitching about the *music*, she's complaining about *values* (while beating her chest about being a "caring" Greenpeace member, as if that's at all relevant to a music review).

>"I wanted none of Skynyrd's talk of down-home values. It sounded like Moral Majority code speak, and this teenaged member of Greenpeace and fan of musical minimalists such as the Ramones and Devo was having none of this Confederate-flag-waving, axe-wielding mob of rednecks in bell-bottoms." <

So she's a fan of that band famous for its long-lived popularity, DEVO, and she bashes Skynyrd?

Ooooh-Kaaaayyyy

Most Metallica fans I know dislike that album. Most pine for the "Ride the Lightning" or "Master of Puppets" days.

But your point is a great one (didn't mean to imply otherwise).

Always take a fan's word for the quality of the music in question.
