Nick Cave sobre el plagio

Nick Cave: “Did you steal ‘Palaces of Montezuma’ from Rising Signs?”

Warren: “Fuck, no!” he says, “I stole it from The Laughing Clowns.”

The great beauty of contemporary music, and what gives it its edge and vitality, is its devil-may-care attitude toward appropriation — everybody is grabbing stuff from everybody else, all the time. It’s a feeding frenzy of borrowed ideas that goes toward the advancement of rock music — the great artistic experiment of our era. 

Plagiarism is an ugly word.
