I talk about this topic a lot in my personal life, mostly because I have kids who are willing to toss out a “so and so sucks” criticism at any musical performer they don’t like. This leads to Dad Lecture #138: The Difference Between Musicians and Performers.
But once again this year, the biggest child of them all has taken over an awards show with his myopic “so and so sucks” viewpoint. So thank you, Kanye, for providing the opportunity for me to finally get paid for Dad Lecture #138.
As for the rest of you? Even if you don’t enjoy the article you’ll totally dig the Prince clip in this piece: http://diffuser.fm/musicians-vs-performers-the-endless-debate/
