Ignorant about music

Dear Editor:

Reading John Finlayson’s letter regarding the Bruce Hornsby show was like reading a letter by some teenybopper with little knowledge of music.

I loved how he compared the Rolling Stones to Bruce. The funny thing is Bruce is not a nostalgic act that plays the same song the same way for more than 40 years. He is always improvising like the great jazz musician that he is. I personally thought it was one of the best shows of 2009.

Please, Aspen Times, don’t put in letters by people who know very little on the subject they are writing.
