Thats the gist of it. Easier said than done, though... not to succumb to peer pressure and have a sense of who you are and what you like. Not many have the self assurance to do that, imo.. : )

I remember a time when I was 15 and and went around singing praises of Hendrix to all the cool cats around me, while privately I just didn't 'get it'. It was all distorted noisy feedback.

Of course the Hendrix eureka moment did arrive a few years later but even within our little musician world I've felt the pressure to like what everyone else likes..
