My issue is not with his nostalgia, but with his perspective that his argument is unassailable because YOU ARE NOT A ROCK STAR.
And until somebody has actually written a check to record their own record and see everything that goes into it, they don't really understand...
Here is the translation:
* I am a person with property of X.
* You are a person who, for all intents and purposes, will never have property of X.
* My argument is based on X.
* Because you do not and cannot have X, your perspective of my argument is automatically invalid.
