Melody, Tim Buckley (1970)
is the one white guy who's been a huge influence on my vocals
because of his range and vibrato. It's sad that it didn't
work out for Tim, but his albums did sell well in the Seventies
whereas now, when if your first album isn't huge you're
out on your ear, he wouldn't get anywhere.
you imagine him going on X Factor? I wonder what Slimy Coward
would have to say about someone with as much spark and attitude
has done a massive disservice to real artistic creativity.
There's no space for people like Dylan, Lennon and the Stones
in Slimy's world.
