    It's so hard to know what to believe these days. I heard there was a European symposium of so called guitar talent experts who assembled in Stockholm or Copenhagen and decided the Malmsteen was going to be the universal standard of guitar talent. Some other guys thought it should be the Emmanuel. I'm not gonna say what the exchange rate is on that, no matter what, somebody's not gonna like it. What's not clear to me is whether I am currently at the level of 1.72 femto-Malmsteens, or -473 on the Emmanuel scale, which is approaching absolute zero.

    It'd be a lot easier to tell if Mick was accurately rated if he actually plugged the guitar in.

    I’m saying Neil Young. I think his skill level has been repeatedly labeled correctly.

    Is this another way of saying that someone's assessment is well justified?

    In my mind they are all rated perfectly by me, for me, according to my tastes and standards. Everyone is entitled to their own rating system.

    In the realm of rating music/musicians...

    We can’t get into -

    “there ain’t no good or bad , there’s just what you like”

    because the mob here will only tolerate so much of that before some half-wit know-it-all will bring up the Beatles and Mozart and who-the-f**k-ever and say ,

    “well , I think we can all agree that so-and-so and so-and-so are geniuses and far superior to this that and the other thing...harrumph !”
