John Fahey hated being called a folkie -- HATED it

He said that the only possible category for his music was "alternative."

But I still think saying that makes "alternative" into a category/label.

How can "alternative" be a category? Alternative should defy categorization, shouldn't it?

I don't blame him. It's basically like saying to someone that they smell of mothballs.

I think he would not take offense if called "American Primitive."
