You rotten jerk!!

I wasn't part of the gang whining about them playing a 20-year-old song a bit slower than the studio version. As always, I focused on the positive.

I'm willing to bet that Tolerate resonates a hell of a lot more with a curious gig-goer than Motown Junk (who) or Motorcycle Emptiness (ah yeah, that one) does

Just because you are a fan of an artists work doesn't mean you can't point out flaws, or dislike it.

There are a lot of musicians/writers/film-makers etc who I'm a big fan of but have a critical opinion on aspects of their work that I think are shit/weak; it doesn't make me a bad fan, it just means I'm still entitled to an opinion.

Dude's in his mid-40s and has always been a heavy smoker - his voice was bound to degrade at some point, and voila, it is doing. Not his fault (well, the smoking is), just what it is.

ffs, I forgot about this guy

Drifting from scene the scene
I'm wondering what in the devil could it all possibly mean?"

... and I never knew who you were to begin with. I'm probably glad that I don't know anything more about you, as for someone to jump to a personal attack on someone for simply expressing an opinion on an internet message board is likely indicative of more malicious personality traits. Wow.
