Default Re: What do you make of this quote?

Music is an appliance, like a microwave oven. It's basically just noise that people find pleasing to have going on in the background of their lives, sort of like a soundtrack.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that. That's what it is, it's what people want and like and relate to. How that affects musicians is something else altogether.

I read a review of Lady Gaga's recent run of shows in the New York Times and she definitely hires musicians to play the music that accompanies her show.

But I have a real problem with the idea that anyone who bought tickets to see Lady Gaga perform on stage did so because of the music those musicians were playing.
