Re: Music Theory
Being original doesn't mean that you can't borrow. Every musician does it to some degree. No musical piece is truly original, but I hate formula music. Record companies are notorious for this. They find a band that people like, such as Pearl Jam and Nirvana in the early '90's, and then they find as many bands that kind of sound like them and market the heck out them. So you end up listening to Bush and Silverchair and a bunch of other obnoxious stuff. They did it with the hair bands, they did it with Southern Rock, they do it with Hip Hop, and they will always do it.
