Talk about life imitating art.
Just like the like the lyrics:
“What a fool believes he sees-no wise man has the power to reason away.
What seems to be, is always better than nothing-than nothing at all.”
…the man from that sings my favorite song perfectly explaining that X left with many Y’s that still can’t figure how or when has stepped to the forefront-bring his artistry to Kanye.
Michael McDonald (of the Doobie Brothers) spoke out in defense of Beck regarding Kanye’s Grammy shenanigans and opinion that Beck should have given his award to Beyonce [and that because he didn’t] he doesn’t respect artistry, as [he-Kanye] felt Beyonce was more deserving of the Grammy award as received by Beck.
Well the What a Fool Believes singer had this to say to Kanye (about what he believes):
“I don’t think it even really bears too much thought. It’s pretty obvious what Kanye’s problem is. When Kanye gets to a point where he can actually put a couple of notes together either vocally or two bars of valid music playing an instrument, then he might have a right to criticize somebody else. Until then, I think he’s just talking to hear the sound of his own voice.”
“The whole kinda cut-and-paste thing is a certain kind of artform all by itself. I don’t know if I call it songwriting from a musician’s standpoint. … Beck is obviously a consummate musician. He plays instruments, many instruments. He can make his own record without having a fleet of computer operators onboard.”
Rocker Nikki Sixx had something to say as well: source
