“Celebritism” by Mariusz Bogdanowicz

What is the contemporary attitude of musicians towards playing music and music itself? Is being a celebrity more important than being an artist?

In TopGuitar’s essay column Mariusz Bogdanowicz wonders about the mindset of today’s artists: does their music sink in a flood of tabloids, social media and parties? Does playing mean showing off? Does creating mean partying?

Read about the naivety and harmlessness so inherent to real artists and the fatal haste for deceptive fame in the May edition of TopGuitar magazine (TG 5/2013).
