    That's why they are studio cats and that why Johnny is on stage entertaining.

    I can't believe the amount of posts slagging entertainers off for looking like entertainers. They are supposed to stand out and it's not all about ability to play,it's a show...you know? Visual? If we extrapolate from the point of acceptable dress,what's next,everyone stand stock still,no dancing or funny guitar faces?

    I think it's ok to laugh at entertainers....... Can't say that I can recall anyone here "slagging him off".

    We live in an age where everyone is in costume, all the time. Can't change the zeitgeist. It's among us. If you even think about how you look when you exit the house, you are part of it.

    Us old folks remember a time where what made you special was on the inside. Those days are long gone. No one looks beyond the surface anymore. All garb is now a vehicle of sorts.

    However, J5 has a skill that transcends all the noise. I do not look to him for anything other than guitar expression and guitar inspiration.

    I don't deride him for his personal style. In that category, he's just another guy out there with a look I can't relate to.

    But oh hell, what a guitar player he is....

    Most people in my generation used to like watching and listening to rock stars dressed in spandex and jumping around on stage. Most of these people did not dress this way in public, though. I still don't quiet understand why some thought this was cool, or who started it, but to each his own.It was a thing of the 80's. Me, I just wear my cowboy hat and boots because that's me. Why? Who knows, who cares. It's the way I am. I think we've passed enough judgement on folks, for this thread.

    It's ok to laugh at some entertainers,but if you are standing laughing at Tommy Emmanuel,then I daresay you will meet with disapproval.

    Perhaps 'slagging off' was a description too severe,I was more baffled by folk not understanding the concept of showmanship.

    A thread asking about foolish looking player(s) that ends up being about 1 guy.

    Why employ a PR rep/assistant?

    I'm a fan. Could care less about looks.

    If I went to see TE, and he came on dressed as a clown, I dare say that I would laugh. Out loud. :D

    Maybe people are wearing on the outside what they are on the inside.

    It is and thank goodness it has an ignore feature we can use to ignore the troll who has seized this thread and is loving every opportunity to irritate and agitate.

    It's not you mate. It's clear that my "attempt to lighten the mood" has irritated and agitated someone.

    Call someone a Troll, then hit ignore button = Class Act.
