Keith Richards' comments on being a music fan
http://<iframe width="100%" height="...V62"></iframe>
Someone asked Keith Richards if he was still a music fan after all these year. I posted a link to his direct quote, but to paraphrase he says that musicians listen to music with a critical ear and they try to figure out how something was created but they have lost the innocence of simply enjoying the music. The same thing can be said for foodies, wine connoisseurs, photographers, car guys and a host of others. It seems for many that the essence of the subject is lost because the details are being over analyzed.
What do you think? Is it possible for a musician, to borrow a phrase from George Michael, “listen without prejudice”?
