"I hate the blues."
Nov 06, 2009, 16:54
Was just trying to read JC's screed on the Godlike Genius of Blue Cheer when I got stopped dead in my tracks by that sentence.

"I hate the blues."

When I was a young idiot of 17, I believe I said that very same thing.
I thought I knew what I was talking about, but I very surely did not have a clue.

A rock musician saying "I hate the blues," is like a painter saying "I hate blue," a chef saying "I hate bluefish". Like a punk saying "I hate rock music".

I love Blue Cheer. I loved Blue Cheer in the 80s, more than 5 years before JC thinks anyone loved Blue Cheer.

Julian Cope makes music I have never given a shit about and he doesn't know what he's talking about when he writes about rock music.

Gauntlet thrown.
