Podcast: Faking It with Yuval Taylor

| 1 comment

Yuval Taylor is the co-author of "Faking It: The Quest for Authenticity in Popular Music." We discuss what Taylor and his co-author Hugh Barker see as the three forms of musical authenticity: cultural, personal and representational.

We discuss (and hear music from) artists including Leadbelly, Nirvana, Neil Young, Woodie Guthrie, the Rolling Stones, Jimmie Rodgers, Donna Summer, Billy Joel and even Jennifer Lopez.

You mentioned mostly rock bands and I thought it was only a joke including J.Lo, anyway I love the way she dance.
