Writer took liberties with description

Please tell the clerk who compiled the list of acts highlighted in the “Week Ahead” column for Sunday to stick to relaying showtimes and venues. [“The Week Ahead,” NW Arts & Life, June 30.]

Your wannabe critic should learn the difference between lyrical and dramatic voices. Characterizing Robert Plant as “the Led Zeppelin master of yelling-as-singing” not only ignores the many sweetly melodic passages of Zeppelin’s music, but also misses the point of the unrestrained wildness that defines one of the greatest bands in history.

Your job is not to snipe at artists who have earned their way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

William Scott, Bellevue
