Some choice quotes from this article:

  • I mean, no wonder everyone likes rock’n’roll. You can buy a guitar and teach yourself for pennies. Bassoons… and the lessons… and the constant orchestra trips? Yup. It’s for posh gits.
  • I’m one of those people who need convincing… classical music just isn’t vulgar enough for me.
  • What was dispiriting was that, toward the close of the show, when the slebs were really trying, you could clearly see the conductors all pissing themselves laughing. It does reek a bit of the geeks revenge. Worse still, one of the judges, during Alex James’ performance at the close says “I’d like to see less enjoyment”. Herein lies the problem with classical music.
  • Don’t be put off by the pompous music or the rubbish clothes they make you wear in orchestras.

Over and out.
