The music industry today is very much songwriting/production-teams, stylists, PR-strategists and so on, isn´t it? Not much room for individualism. Back then I think we in some ways took all those musicians for granted and not realizing how great and diversely talented they in fact were. As it often happens it´s only in retrospect we can see that now. The late 70´s and early 80´s was such an incredible era that in my view have never been matched in terms of individualism and inventiveness.
