No, mr. Ross, i feel i should apolagise for starting the whole chuffing thing. Sorry for hearing similurarities in Son House & Jandek and mentioning it!
I had another good idea involving Blues in the 30's, his remaining almost anon. and the blues "rediscovery" in the 60's. But im not going to go into it now. i cant be bothered.

I'm really sorry for upsetting you. My naive and sporadic ears have disgraced Jandek and everything about him. I feel so stupid, so dressed down. I'm going to go back to listening to Linkin Park, Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit now, I'm so sorry I ever spoke such stupid words.
Can the list ever forgive me? Ha ha guitar technique. I'll say what the fuck I want about who the fuck I want. I think Garbage sound like Fleetwood Mac. Does that mean that the guitar style has to be the same?
You sir are a chuffing fool. Get out of my face.
