Poet Rates Eminem
The Celtic wordsmith, 64, made the observation at the opening of THE PRINCE OF WALES SUMMER SCHOOL in Norwich, east England yesterday (30JUN03).
When asked if he could name a musician who - like JOHN LENNON - had turned young people on to poetry with their lyrics, he replied, "There is this guy Eminem. He has created a sense of what is possible.
"He has sent a voltage around a generation. He has done this not just through his subversive attitude but also his verbal energy."01/07/2003 02:32
