FISHMAN ON INVENTION VS. INNOVATION

There are two ways to create original music: You can lock yourself in a closet and not listen to anything, and whatever comes out will be something that sounds like nothing else; or you can immerse yourself in every traditional way of making music, and then what comes out of you is your own personal, unique blend of the best.

Jon Fishman, quoted by Gemma Tarlach in the 12/25/98 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
