Old Goat no threat

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, November 11, 2004

The Juneau Empire's Nov. 1, letter to the editor featuring Peter Lie-Nielsen's complaint was almost as entertaining as an Old Goat show. Has the complainant even been to an Old Goat concert? I honestly doubt it. If he had, he would realize that this group poses absolutely no threat to anyone of any age.

I have attended all but two Old Goat concerts and their general audience is between the ages of 17 and 30. While attending these shows, not once have I ever participated in "destructive groupie-type behavior." Maybe your "impressionable youth" are acquiring such behavior at the source of your own paranoia.

It's very mindless to point your finger at musicians when most kids obtain their destructive and nihilistic attitudes through television.

From dictionary.com, "Reporting, To write or provide an account or summation for publication or broadcast: Report the news."

Thank you Korry Keeker.
