Default Re: Creativity Discouraged in Today's Popular Music?

It's happending in live groups too. The band I was recently "fired" from (an all volunteer position), the leader was one of these egotistical anal cats who was too damn scared to try anything new, other than having a 2 bar drum fill of just a basic 4/4 rock beat. We had a very good rhythm guitarist / Djembe player, several good singers, keyboards, etc. But this jerk refused to experiment or explore. Rather it was just a rehash of what was on the CD. After he assumed leadership in January, things got REALLY boring.

Isn't it our jobs as musicians to push the envolope, experiment, explore, etc?
I don't aim to be the best, just the best looking.
