"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Never heard of these folks, so sharing:

Felice Bryant (August 7, 1925 – April 22, 2003) and Diadorius Boudleaux Bryant (August 7, 1925 – April 22, 2003 February 13, 1920 – June 25, 1987) were an American husband and wife country music and pop songwriting team. They were best known for songs such as "Rocky Top," "Love Hurts", and numerous hits by the Everly Brothers, including "All I Have to Do Is Dream", "Bye Bye Love", and "Wake Up Little Susie".

My friend interviewed Eddie Money for the local newspaper when he was playing some summerfest. My friend asked Eddie about opening up for the Clash and the Who at the Pontiac Silverdome in the early 80s. Eddie then went off about how shitty the Clash were and how they were responsible for ruining music.
