yeah so I listened to The Kinks- I’m not like everybody else for the first time today. what a masterpiece.
Music is a thing that changes people’s lives. It has the capacity to make young people’s lives better. Music has got us through school, break-ups, whatever - so it’s more than just entertainment, the way I see it. It’s like, if you can write it, you should do. You’ve got a duty to the world to put it fucking out there. There are not enough good things in the world. You’ve not got a duty to make more guns, or synthesise more drugs, or fucking design more cars. But you’ve got a duty to make music. If you can, you should.
