Never really liked his stuff, but I have to agree with his views on music critics and music in the UK today.....


"The singer, who was born Declan Patrick MacManus in Paddington, London, castigated British music fans for their lack of imagination and for refusing to listen to records produced by older musicians.

"A lot of good new bands still come out of England but I just don't feel part of it. British music fans don't have the same attitude to age as they do in America, where young people come to check out, say Willie Nelson. They feel some connection with him and find a role for that music in their lives", he said."
