Their work with Van Morisson is beautiful, but if people are opposed to the Bee Gees on the ground that "it isn't rock" then I guess Celtic Folk music has no chance whatsoever...tough break for the Chieftans and for Clannad.

Yeah, pretty much my thoughts. A great band with an excellent body of work, but probably no where close enough to rock. Oh well, perhaps there's still hope for the Pogues.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
