The First "Musician"

Wouldn't it be neat if America had a position know as the "first musician". Just to set the standard. As it stands know we just have a free for all of Music. If this were an actual job either elected by the people or appointed by the first lady, maybe there would be less communication failures.

We used to have a first musician (on the violin); but, Jack Benny died. The heir apparent would seem to be Steve Martin on the banjo.

It's a naive position, JB. We've had a First Lady for a long time now, and I haven't noticed an improvement in US housekeeping over the years.

Since such a position would be fulfilled either by election or appointment, it will be subject to politics.

Would you like it so much to have a "first musician" like Miss Perry harping about her last friday night (binge drinking, a stranger in her bed, no rememberance but yet it surely was great) ?

I think Adele was the big winner this year

In a symphony you have a conductor don't you... what we have now is a symphony of destruction... "you take a mortal man an put him in control, watch him become a God and watch heads start to roll.." wouldn't it be so much more civil if there were a "symphony of survival" or some sort of "symphony of political sanity".. that's change I can believe in..

You'd end up with some crap lowest common denominator musician like the aforementioned Perry, Niki Minaj, or Taylor Swift. Democracy barely works for politics, it should never be introduced to anything dealing with aesthetics. Why this fascination with hierarchy?

I like the edge it gives.. the leading edge.. I was in a club in high school called pit, something to do with politics but I forgot what it stood for so I renamed it "p-olitics i-n t-echnology" I dunno if you are ever going to make a difference in the world you have to have political connections, (of which I have none) but it's fun to pretend..
