Find Me On:
David Byrne has been doing this “sort of thing” for 40 years.
I read it once, FWIW…and he’s figured out something that never even crosses the mind of way too many makers of AND listeners to music, something that transcends generationally, and more power to him for “getting it”.
And the Black Keys ripped off John Lee Hooker….so what’s the big difference? Are the Black Keys somehow soooo original, that anything w/3 chords and a 3/4 or 4/4 rock beat is now a Black Keys ripoff? I mean, come on, Johnny Depp played w/them, so how “original” can they possibly be? It’s ridiculous, all this attitude…
