I play this music because I love the absolute fuck out of it. I play it because it's physically and intellectually demanding. I play it because there is no other music in entire world that grabs my guts and gives me a deep religious experience, and it has since I first wandered off of Led Zeppelin into Son House.
Is this cultural appropriation?
Is cultural appropriation always a bad thing? Or is it necessary for the growth of culture? When is it okay to appropriate one aspect of culture and not another?
I don't know.
