Re: Gene Simmons Offer.

I'm considering the issue solely from the point of view of the music. Music is sound. The part of performance that is perceived that is not sound by definition cannot be music. The part of performance that you take in with eyes (and thus, the costume, the face paint, the light shows, the giant videos) is not music.

I am not criticizing performance, nor even commenting on performance. I am solely addressing the "musician" part of Maria Callas' comment "what constitutes a "serious" artistic musician".
