Default Re: Music's deadliest genre

Negativity is often used as inspiration for music...then music helps to move above that negativity.

Think of the blues and jazz....created by people who lived in poverty...often very sad lives.

It is not just grunge, rap, rock 'n roll and the multiple subgenres of metal that are known for the doom and gloom associated with their music and musicians.

To quote Lisa from The Simpsons:

"I'm going to be a famous jazz musician. I've got it all figured out. I'll be unappreciated in my own country, but my gutsy blues stylings will electrify the French. I'll avoid the horrors of drug abuse, but I do plan to have several torrid love affairs, and I may or may not die young. I haven't decided."

Good musicians tend to belong to a range of strange personalities.
