Re: John Duffey's Playing Style
OK, I'm sorry to be negative here, but I feel that I must say that whenever he took a break, I couldn't wait for it to end. Yes, he "sold" it to audiences, but, in my opinion, even on the recordings, it just doesn't hold up over the years.
I'm generally more positive than this; in fact, I can't think of another pro player I just flat out don't like.
No accounting for my taste, I guess.
