  1. So how is it that mediocre musicians get famous?
    And how is it that exceptional musicians can work for long periods of time and not be famous?
    Most importantly, Why aren’t more people looking for the good musicians?

    • Hmmm… mediocre artists who become famous give large numbers of undemanding listeners what they are used to, not try to introduce them to something new and exciting. Most ordinary people prefer artists who flatter their tastes, rather than challenge them. What each individual would consider ‘good’ varies wildly. depending on their level of artistic culture, exposure, and what they want art to do for them. Thanks for the Q! It applies to writing just as much as music.
