Paul Grein was absolutely right on the mark about Julio Iglesias ("Iglesias a Lover, Not a Singer," Sept. 27).
I noticed that none of the indignant fans who have written to protest Grein's review have refuted any of the criticisms leveled by him (Calendar Letters, Oct. 19 and 12).
Instead, they pounced on him for daring to criticize their darling, pointing to Julio's popularity as proof of how wrong Grein is.
My friends, popularity is no proof of excellence. If you like Julio, fine, but just don't try to insist that everyone else should, too. As for me, I wouldn't walk around the corner to hear him again.
