I’ve always compared serious music snobs to wine snobs, who can be made to pay any amount of money for drugstore junk as long as they think it comes from France. (They can also be made to spit out pricey wine if you tell them it came from Walgreens.) I’m reminded of that story about Pandora punking Bob Lefsetz, too.
Nothing like watching a snob get pantsed. 🙂
