Style is whatever you want to do, if you can do it with confidence.
I'm always surprised that I'm still around funk and that people are still into it.
The words I use too often are X-rated, something an old man like me shouldn't be talking about anyway.
Record companies would rather you stay dumb, not even think of it as a business, so they can either rip you off or get you out of the way in five years to make way for the new groups.
I pick up on styles, way before they get popular, pretty much before young kids do. I see 'em coming.
