This paper explores the issue of authentic music, stating that many people believe rock music to be more real or authentic than pop music. The paper explains that pop music is more synthetic and without the help of computers, would not sound like it does while rock music is the pure raw authentic talent of the musician. The paper focuses on the music of Eric Clapton to explain its theories.
From the Paper:"Authenticity is a major issue in discourses on popular music, and seems to be the bedrock of the distinction between "pop" and "rock", i.e., whether musicians can be trusted ("rock") or not ("pop"), which comes down to the distinction of whether musicians are "authentic" or "commercial" (Moore, 2002). In these discourses, authenticity is assumed to mean "true to its origins"."
