    I think it’s a blessing as well as a curse… Anybody nowadays can learn an instrument and get themselves heard via the internet – which is great. But it also almost brings musicians closer and shatters the image that they’re idolised, if that makes sense? I wrote a piece called ‘musicians used to be gods… what happened’ which looked at this, and I came to the conclusion that the accessibility of the internet is both a positive and negative thing.
