I doubt that your distaste for Chris Farlowe's persona exceeds mine. It was when I learned that he had a thing for nazi regalia that did it for me. I always thought him too overblown and bombastic anyway. He was certainly the worst thing that ever happened to jon Hiseman's Colisseum. Plant? He's got a voice and he can sing when he wants to. There's a lot of people with an ability that they don't always put to best use. Victor Brox is a name I recognise, but I'm not sure where I know it from. I probably didn't say how much I like Steve Marriot's voice - there was a visceral edge to it that the others didn't have; that - and one look at his face - told you all you needed to know about where he was coming from. I was genuinely saddened when he died, he always struck me as the real deal.
