I’ll have to give them a go. Sadly when it comes to music i am a real music snob, i wish i wasn’t though. I have mates that enjoy listening to Prince and then AC/DC, whereas i am too blinkered.

A snob is a fool. Eclecticism is the spice of musical life.

I went through a couple of teenage years of dismal snobbery. All ended one day in 1983 when I bought together two albums released that year - "Porcupine" by Echo and the Bunnymen and "The Look" by Shalamar. Both are good in their own way. Why forego the enjoyment of listening to the latter because I like the former?

There's a thing I've noticed about the younger generation - they are rarely as cliquey as their parents were at the same age. Okay, a lot of it is down to pretty much any music being discoverable with a click or two, but even so, they seem so much more broad-minded.
