    Damn that’s just rude. You could have left him with only one mistake, but you had to take it to: “you really don’t know Shit about music do you?” Level. Ah, but what else are you gonna do with all the knowledge.

    It didn’t seem rude to me. It seemed like a teachable moment of a correction to someone that clearly cares.

    I was about 3 back in the line when he very enthusiastically said “Wow, Stevie Nicks! I love her!”
