well, first off, i wasn't necessarily slagging rita macneil. whether or 
not i like her is irrelevant. my point is, if an east coast band or 
singer is really really successful, i don't necessarily have to sing the 
praises of the artist(s). it's not a pride thing with me. i couldn't care 
less where a band comes from. if they're good, they're good....if they 
suck, they suck (and it's all opinion, folks!)
if you like rita, or OLP, that's your (or whoever's perogative).

p.s.- you spelled nana's name right ;)
