So, let me get this straight: because they aren't artists, they're attacking art?

Oh, and here's a question I'd like to throw in. Imagine that some idiot goes to a bar and sees a Rolling Stones tribute band. For some reason, he's unfamiliar with the source material and is inspired by what he hears and wants to start a band. Is this tribute band now part of the inspirers (EG: artists) and not the inspired?

No. The idiot is inspired by the original artist's work not the tribute band.

If you are inspired and choose to play music then you have to make your own art or then yes you are hurting the cycle of art.

I don't know how else to put it:

You're wrong.

What happens when a band plays a cover song during a show? Are they all of a sudden not artists anymore? Is the cycle broken? Will they have to wait another month to catch the next cycle?

Like others have said, art and entertainment fall into two different categories. I don't actively go out to listen to tribute bands, they don't function in the same way as a "real" band. Who's to say they're not just doing this on the side for some money to finance their musical aspirations?

There's some real-world context to this, Screwy, and I think you're missing all of it.

When a female artist becomes pregnant, their cycle is broken.

So, now they're hurting the cycle rather than breaking it?

What would Kate Bush think of this? She makes shrill, wanky art.
