Batman Meme: Punk's Not Music


Inspired by a conversation I made the mistake of jumping into relating to Greg Lake's contention that punk is not a form of music, but mostly just part of my ongoing efforts to teach myself Photoshop and keep myself amused.

I read that interview, spurred on by the shock-horror pullquote. I see his point, but he's mistooken.

Yeah, the pullquote got me to read an interview with Greg Lake, which wouldn't have happened otherwise. He seems relatively well grounded and thoughtful throughout the rest of the interview. Everyone's entitled to an opinion on any subject whether they know anything about it or not.

The quote would have made perfect sense coming from a progger who felt under attack in 1977...in 2013, it just sounded weird. I find it hard to believe anyone wants to re-fight these old battles.

My other comment to him would have been "How about sticking to the salad bar?"

Yeah he does not look to be in great shape...better than Sid Vicious though, so score one for team prog rock!
