yeah.  this is a very unfair part of the music industry too.  the
originators get forgotten, and the follow on-ers get all the benefits.

take this 'new' scene of dubstep that has just sprung up.  you have american
kids with faked writs cuts drawn with texta pens to impress the twilight emo
vampire wannabe crowd, making terrible soul-less versions of the original
sound and filling it to the brim with cheesy melodies, and snare drum
the originators have earnt nothing for too long, and go back to their day

and the emo chumps sip jack daniels and diet coke with tommy lee and rave on
about how they're living the rockstar lifestyle.

i am just a simple person with 5 fingers on each hand, and a high school
education, and solutions to these sort of inequities are beyond me.
