It's The Art, Stupid

ACD at Sounds & Fury rips into artists (musicians, in this case) who forget that the art itself is the only thing that matters.

This reminds me of a snippet I read somewhere or other. Apparently, P.G. Wodehouse was once asked how he wrote all his wonderful works. Plum replied, "Oh, I don't know. I just sit down at the typewriter and swear a bit." As a matter of fact, Wodehouse slaved over his books. But he was enough of a true artist to understand that this was irrelevant in judging the final product.

In a related coincidence, our friend Lynn at Reflections in D Minor is hammering on people who forget that composers are as human as the rest of us.
