Steely Dan

What is rock and roll?  Maybe a mind-set.  Wherein those not beholden to a system test limits and their audience is liberated from everyday pressures and obligations.  A music that isn’t constrained, not made to formula, but writes its own rule book.

Rules.  That’s what we’ve got in the business today.  And that’s why oldsters pooh-pooh the Top Forty crap.  Where’s the innovation?  Doesn’t anyone aspire to greatness?
