The Grammys were this past week. I haven’t watched them since I was a kid. I watched a little this time to see some friends who were performing on the show. I stopped watching the Grammys many years ago because it goes against my sense of what music is about. As musicians in the modern world, we all have to package, brand, and market ourselves to have viable careers - but in the end I believe that no one “owns” music. We borrow music. Music is something that passes through us, temporarily using us as it’s instrument. Music reflects the endless creativity that is our nature and the nature of the universe.
