To clarify my last post, when I wrote "only in the 20th century could you 
have both Louis Armstrong and Sid Vicious claiming to be musicians," I meant 
that you can have both a great virtuoso artist  (Louis) and a 
self-destructive hack who couldn't play his instrument (Sid V) both claiming 
the title of musician.  I meant to show a comparison of extremes.  I was NOT 
saying that Satchmo was only claiming to be a musician!

All the best,
Rob McCallum
