I seem to recall Rod Stewart’s butchering of his music bringing some world class comments from Tom Waits though. I’m not certain but I think he described Downtown Train thus:
‘So bad as to be almost unrecognisable.’ and said of his shit karaoke attempt at Tom Traubert’s Blues:
If I’d know he was going to sing it I never would have written it.

So it was worth suffering the butchering, just for those put-downs. The man’s a legend!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
