After some technical difficulties getting home from Wrockstock, and a hard-hitting case of WSN1, I regret that I was unable to get to Question Tuesday until now.
Today’s question was inspired by Stine’s comment last week:
“I would definitely classify the AVPM soundtrack as wizard rock. It’s music, it’s awesome, and it’s about Harry Potter. Wizard rock.
That being said, though, I wouldn’t classify the StarKidPotter people as wizard rockers. AVPM was just one of their many projects, and nobody had expected it to take off like it did. AVPM is a play, written and performed by a theatre company, and what we call wizard rock is just the soundtrack. That’s what I think differentiates it from Lena’s wrock opera, which I’ve always seen as more of an ‘extended’ wizard rock song.”
So, what makes you a wizard rocker? Does this mean that Switchblade Kittens aren’t a wizard rock band? What if you have only written one song in your life, and it happens to be a wizard rock song?
I don’t claim to have answers to this (or even a solid opinion) – I just wanted to open it up to discussion.
