That said I think tribute bands are the opposite of what real artists stand for. Musicians create original music that should inspire others to create their own. The point of making art is to express your humanity. Tribute bands don't play their own music and dress up like real artists. As I see it, that is against the point of art and since Musicians play to express themselves it is against what artists stand for. Tribute bands are the enemies of art and those they mimic. They should play their own music not someone elses. That is how I feel about tribute bands.

Do you agree or disagree?
so i suppose the new york philharmonic, who dress up in tuxes and play other people's music, aren't real artists?

yo yo ma will smack you with his cello.

This thread pretty much proves the point that there is no real answer to the age old question of what is art because everyone sees and hears things differently.

To say that someone isn't an artist because they don't play their own music, simply isn't true in my opinion. For instance say that you have a lyricist; he or she is an artist for writing the music. Now they might not have a great voice so they give their lyrics to a recording artist who yes, has their own 'interpretation' of the song, but they them self are creating the sound and emotions for how the audience will respond to it.

Tribute bands are for entertainment but the people in the tribute bands are artists in their own right because they have to either be able to sing or play their instrument well. This is what contradicts Screwtapes opinion I believe. Just because the musicians are playing someone elses music, doesn't take away the fact that they have great musical skills behind the presentation.

You can't label art.

False.

an artist creates
Frank Sinatra created awesomeness out of lyrics and music that in someone else's hand is just nice
the London Philharmonic creates beauty out of sheet music in a way that not many can equaly
some cover bands create a wonderful evening

some cover bands are just shit
much like some painters, poets, writers and composers can be shit

This thread has to go into the hall of fame...all it needs is a little sexing up, and it will have everything you could ever want.

Honestly also one of the strangest threads ever on Interference, other than intentionally weird threads of which there is quite a lot.
