Only my opinion!
Recognizing Jimmy Webb's status as Chairman Emeritus, Songwriters Hall of Fame, and with consideration to his tremendous God-given talents as a songwriter and composer, I am taken aback by this comment he made during the interview:
I am unfamiliar with the artist DM and his penned music. Perhaps the guy can't even write his own name. (joke) But did DM, a fellow songwriter and winner of multiple Grammy and ASCAP Awards, deserve this flaming remark by JW? I don't believe so. Personally, I give credit to anyone who is practicing and living and working his craft (awards or no awards) in the music business (or any business for that matter)."Dave Matthews doesn't know [...] about songwriting! He couldn't write his way out of a paper bag!"
Maybe JW just needs a small vacation.
