Re: [Harp-L] Re: Gussow in Princeton Alumni Weekly please read before posting on this topic
I seem to recall some one doing a survey on what amp you play , what
mike , do you play pro , how old are you etc.
I think they concluded the median age of players of those who
responded was around 53.
So I guess some one who is 51 or 52 would be considered an "old
turk " . . .
Signed a middle-aged traditionalist .

Ok, I'm confused. A cross post of a provocative interview of Adam

So far so good. From there we had some comments but from a lot of
comments it appeared nobody had really followed the thread on
Harmonica. Adam followed up with a couple of explanations and an
of sorts and since then virtually all of the posting has been about
good or bad and which version of truth and or history the poster has
chosen to adopt.
Here's the confused part, how is any of this about harmonica and
you discuss the in and outs of an entirely different list than harp-
have that discussion be anything other than meta discussion? I can
glimmer of a possible core discussion, young turks versus the
traditionalists and what that might mean culturally and musically.
nobody's gone there.
The bottom line, it's fine to continue the thread but only if the
discussion is able to be about our topic, all things harmonica.
revisionist interpretive histories of something that didn't even
this list is not going to work. I do have one question that is
to the discussion, at what age is someone no longer a young turk?
