Lester Bangs said the last thing we all agreed on was Elvis. After that everything fragmented.

I think any great innovation musically will be on the level of a composer, somebody with real compositional skills bringing many elements and genres together enjoyably.

The glorification of musical ineptness has led us to the same staleness that 70's overproficiency that spawned a punk backlash.


I agree totally. Moronic simplicity is no better than the moronically baroque and over-wrought. This idea that not being able to play has some noble peasant honesty about it is as misleading as Mao and culturally just as dangerous in its own way.
