  • New, serious…let’s call it “grown-up music“! That’ll sell tickets. (It could be worse. Stones’ fans just got saddled with “geezer rock“.)

  • Thom Yorke did not score “Creep” for bass-clarinet quartet. And now we all know why. [via music for maniacs]

  • Don’t like Mozart? Just shut up. You’re wrong. And you—you’re nothing like him.

  • Think your composition teacher is tough? Axl Rose’s editor has made him cry, too. [via secret society]
