Someone brought this to my attention in the Hendrix thread and I noticed he's right. Everyone always says "Clapton is God", "Hendrix is God", even going so far as to say "Herman Li is God" but you never hear "Mozart is God", or "Beethoven (sp?) is God" or anything. Yes I realize this is a guitar site and most of you don't believe in God but c'mon let's give these guys some credit.

Classical composers/musicians thread starts now!!!!

it just doesn't roll off the tongue...

it's awkward saying "Rimsky-Korskakov is God!!!"
just doesn't flow.

You would probably hear people saying that in an orchestra, and/or orchestral based website.

I've heard people talking about how "Bach is awesome" etc.

Mozart was the Sid Vicious of his day. Nuff' said.

Y'know, I was going to bring this up in the Hendrix thread. Mozart was a true virtuoso, Hell, he was composing and performing live when he was about 9.

I listen to the music, that's good enough for me. I don't really idolize anybody. Not anymore. But I do listen to a lot of classical music, and understand what you mean how they don't get a lot of credit. Such as, Johann Pachelbel must be some sort of diety seeing as how he influenced many modern songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM

And if I had to choose a classical composer to be a god, I would probably have to say it's a close one between Henry Purcell and Aaron Copland.

Rachmaninov is my favorite hands down. I was watching some kind of classical show on Public Broadcasting and they had this 14 year old asian kid whaling on a grand piano, it was ****ing crazy.

To be honest, I'm sick of all the "why does nobody listen to classical music?" threads. It's basically just a way of saying "LoOkit ME! I have surfisticated taste in moosik!"

I'm not sure that this thread is an example of the phenomenon you describe, but people have to stop with the bullshit about classical music being more sophisticated than modern music.

Its not superior to listen to classical, but I think it shows maturity to be able to appreciate different styles of music.

Having said that my ears ****ing bleed if any country is played within earshot.
