Music is a Buffet Line

Music is a Buffet Line

Music is like a buffet table. Everyone brings their dish. Some bring 5 bean salad, or potato salad,or caesar salad, or cole slaw and others might bring something totally different like chocolate chip cookies, apple pie, green bean casserole, tuna salad. Some might just bring crackers, carrot sticks, or chips. Some musicians might think that the people who brought the crackers did not bring a dish as good as theirs.
Then the people who listen to the music come up and grab a paper plate and pick and choose what they want to fill their plate. They are not going to like everything on the buffet line and some they may want to just sample but it doesn’t mean they will come back for seconds.
And guess what? At the end of the meal, the buffet line is empty. All of the food is gone!
I don’t like when I hear musicians putting down other people’s music or genres and realize that ALL MUSIC has someone who wants to listen to it. There’s music for everyone and there’s a fan for everyone’s music.
I hope I never think that I am too good or too talented or that my genre of music is the only music in the world. Feel sorry for people who think they are all that and a bag a chips! Ego causes indigestion!
