Wondering about something: Why is it that so many musicians I've met only seem to listen to one genre of music? (Or two at the most.) Death metalers listen to death metal, jazz guys listen to jazz, punkers listen to punk, indie rockers listen to indie stuff or maybe Velvet Underground. It seems that so many musicians are so limited. What gives with that? Is it some kind of concerted effort to NOT like things or force oneself to be limited? The best musicians I've played with had varied tastes and were fluent in different genres. Is there some kind of law that one cannot listen to Cannibal Corpse and Kansas and Theivery Corporation all in the same week? I'm a metal guy, and familiarity with other genres makes me better at playing metal. Isn't that part of being a musician? Isn't that what makes being a musician so enjoyable in the first place?
