About The Song Project, Darren wrote:
Here's my current vote count (through Paul K's vote). I included printthelegends' vote, as I don't think that he intentionally voted for only 9 songs. If he had accidentally voted for more than 10 songs, the ballot would be impossible to include, but as he clearly intended to vote for these 9 songs and I don't think he deliberately voted for fewer than 10 songs, I think that the votes should be included.


Missy Elliott - Work It (2002) - 11

I actually think that every act up there is almost exactly where they should be.

Well, if you honestly believe that the king of weepy singer-songwriters James Taylor (who has no business in any HOF other than the consignment store record bin HOF) did more to develop rock 'n roll (not rock music, that's a needless abbreviation) than The Ventures (with the exception of Booker T and the MG's, the most significant instrumental rock 'n roll band of the 1960s), then I have nothing to say (as Oliver Hardy would have said).

About Ted Nugent, Zach wrote:
Happened to come upon FRL while searching Muddy Waters and decided to browse some of the artist pages for old time's sake. Then I discovered this bile spewed by the eternally pathetic Paul in KY (who disgraces the fine state of Kentucky by using its initials in his user name):

Didn't Zach like him?

Posted by Paul in KY on Sunday, 08.17.14 @ 12:25pm

The answer is an emphatic no. Once upon a time I did enjoy Stranglehold and Cat Scratch Fever, but his music does not hold up well on repeated listenings. Too much macho cock-rock for my liking. That Nugent feels compelled to comment on current affairs (like a lot of other uninformed rawk musicians who think they are uniquely qualified to do suo) only heightens my dislike for him.

Now if you'll excuse me, I must resume my listening to James Booker's Classified, an outstanding album from one of the masters of New Orleans R&B and a multitude of other styles (stride piano, light classical, piano blues, and others too countless to name).
