1. Yes, I see your point if you don't like a style of music, exposure will be limited. But if a guitarist is so great it is being talked about in all guitar circles, wouldn't it be worth while to check it out? I never was a fan of auto racing, but I started to hear about this young kid named Jeff Gordon winning 13 races in a 33 race season...man, I just had to check him out.
2. OK, I get your Morrissey problems. Then just listen to a few Smith songs for the music. "This Charming Man" is lightning fast jangle heaven.
3. Your idea of a player being so good they could never be an inspiration. Yes, I agree. I never look to Hendrix for inspiration. It would be too humiliating for me to try to do what he does.
Racing? There is this kid called Lewis Hamilton who just tied up his sixth World Championship winning 11 races in a 21 race season. But guitar-wise, there are so many great guitarists out there that I don't really need to make myself suffer just to hear another. This is not necessarily about the bands, but sometimes about them. I acknowledge the ability of Guthrie Govan, but I can't listen to him.
