Hi all,

Yes . . . it would be sad to have that happen. But sad to whom?  We'll all 
be dead and the future generations will know nothing about it.  Who's sad?

It's like the tree in the forest. If a sad thing happens and nobody is there 
to experience it is it really sad?

Now this is a real debatable point. I think it could be equally argued that 
a Louis impression may go a long way toward "turning off" any young budding 
musician on the whole genre.

Respectfully Submitted,
