Nabby, this has been a pointless criticism. If you are a critic, you can verbally describe the differences between Curtis and other musicians as regards style, technique and so forth; if you can't do that, you are not even a critic. Artists regard critics the way fire hydrants regard dogs because they tend to be destructive rather than constructive. If Curtis were as bad as you say, what do you think he should do to improve?
What is your real gripe with Curtis? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : " I am able to play a bit more enthusiastically these days than the 4 dead guys you listed however." We know they are dead so that goes without saying. Hopefully you are not so out of touch with reality as you come across that you compare yourself in any possible way with these musicians.
